      East Coast Greenway, NJ: D&R Canal history bike ride

      Join the East Coast Greenway and D&R Canal Watch for a rare opportunity to bike a traffic-free Canal Road in Franklin Township on Sunday, June 10 and to hear stories about what was once one of the country’s busiest navigation canals. We’ll learn about the canal’s construction in the 1830s and explore some structures that still remain. This family-friendly bike ride will go from Route 518 in Rocky Hill to the Griggstown Causeway on Canal Road. We’ll take a break there and then head back on the D&R Canal towpath (which is part of the 3,000-mile East Coast Greenway) for a 7-mile round-trip adventure. Meet at the D&R Canal parking lot on Kingston-Rocky Hill Road (Route 603) just south of Route 518 at 10 a.m. Children must be accompanied by an adult. All riders must wear a helmet. --  D&R Canal Watch is a nonprofit organization that seeks to protect, maintain & promote the recreational, historical, aesthetic and environmental qualities of the D&R Canal State Park.
