The Cross-Jersey Walking Challenge will follow the East Coast Greenway’s entire 100-mile New Jersey trail, part of which includes the D&R Canal. The first 2011 FreeWalkers event, the TR2NB40 – Great Canal Walk on Saturday, April 9, will provide an opportunity to walk 40 miles in one day from Trenton to New Brunswick. The East Coast Greenway is a multi-use, developing trail system, spanning nearly 3,000 miles as it winds its way between Canada and Key West, linking all the major cities of the eastern seaboard. The ECG is always a fascinating mix of trails, unexpected routes and local hidden sights, which can delight even the most seasoned hiker. The East Coast Greenway Alliance hopes to benefit from donations and the increased awareness and use of this unique public resource.
