More Info:

An easy & enlightening 13-mile walking journey along the East Coast Greenway ending at the Thomas Edison museum.

Join in on this flat and easy trek between New Brunswick and Metropark in Iselin along the East Coast Greenway. The walk is FREE and open to everyone.

It's a suburban walk on the sidewalk along some fairly busy roads, through the interesting town of Highland Park and older neighborhoods in Edison. The trail goes through the popular Roosevelt Park and to the new Thomas Edison Center at Menlo Park with its huge monument, museum, and grounds. We finish with an optional guided tour of the Thomas Edison Center.

It's a quirky mixture celebrating the old and new, the industrial and post-industrial.

The walk should only be about 4.5 hours and is the connecting segment between the Great Canal Walk in April and the Big Walk thereafter so that you can complete the Cross-Jersey Walking Challenge.

The Between Walk ends at the newly renovated Thomas Edison Center near Metro Park Station. This was the site of Edison's most famous and productive laboratory. Although the lab buildings are now gone, there remains a woodsy trail to the museum, grounds, and newly restored art-deco monument to the genius he was.

The FreeWalkers are again offering the Cross-Jersey Walking Challenge, with the goal of walking the 100 miles of the East Coast Greenway across the entire state at any time during the year. This walk is part of the ECG trail from Trenton to New York City.
