Walking Tour, Delaware & Raritan Canal

Saturday November 18, 2017
10:00 AM

The Delaware & Raritan Canal Watch will hold another in its series of free interpretive walking tours of the D&R Canal on Saturday, Nov. 18.

The walk will be between Carnegie Road in Lawrence and Cadwalader Park, Trenton, with the option of a shorter version.

The 6.2-mile walk will include the bridge tender’s house at Carnegie Road, a surprisingly remote section of the canal to Whitehead Road in Lawrence, an industrial portion south of Whitehead Road, a new link path around the section of the canal that is diverted into a culvert below the Trenton Freeway and many historic sites along the canal in Trenton.  The shorter walk will be 2.5 miles.

Canal Watch board member Pamela V’Combe will conduct the walk and provide commentary.

Meet 10 a.m. at the Ellarslie Mansion, the Trenton City Museum in Cadwalader Park.  The park entrance is near 299 Parkside Ave. Carpools will be arranged to allow a one-way walk.

For further information and weather-related updates e-mail Ms. V’Combe at pjvcombe@gmail.com or call 609-635-2783.
