Welcome to the beTween Walk
The FreeWalkers 7th Annual "beTween Walk" will take place on Saturday April 15, 2017. The walk traces the East Coast Greenway and Middlesex Greenway trails for about 12 miles from New Brunswick to Metropark Station, Iselin. This walk is designed to pick up where the Great Canal Walk leaves off in New Burnswick (April 8th) and end where the 50-mile Big Walk begins on May 20, 2017. All three walks combined enable one to complete the Cross-Jersey Walking Challenge of walking 100 miles on the East Coast Greenway across the entire state in 2017.
This walk is a relatively easy 12-mile walk through towns, streets, county roads, parks and new community trails like the Middlesex Greenway. The trail plenty has plenty to offer in unique sightseeing surprises along the way. Over the last few years, a new natural trail along the Middlesex Greenway (former rail bed) now offers less streetside walking. The Edison Monument renovations are complete and its small museum is now open to the public. Plans are being made to stop by there and marvel at the genius of the man and the art deco monument, the world's largest light bulb honoring the man.
Come join us. This event is FREE and open to everyone.
