Travel alongside two historic canals systems that stretch from New Brunswick to Trenton and from Trenton to Frenchtown and imagine a time when mules hauled cargo on this scenic route. See remnants of a bygone era in the form of wooden bridges, locks, stone-arched culverts, and small towns that played a huge role in American history. Also an important wildlife corridor, this 69-mile trail offers something for everyone.
