This 2-mile hike explores the lives of the early settlers and the community they established, while following a portion of the trail George Washington took from Trenton to the Princeton Battlefield. Stops include the Stony Brook Meeting House and Burial Ground, walking a portion of the “hidden” back road into Princeton, and a view of the Battlefield.

Starts at the Updike Farmstead, 354 Quaker Road. Tickets are $10. Advanced tickets required – no walk ups will be allowed.

Space is limited to 12 participants. Masks are required for indoor portions of the tour. If participants have experienced any COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days of the tour, we ask that they stay home and contact us for a full refund. Guides are fully vaccinated and only lead tours if they are symptom-free.
