Light Rail trip through the marsh
February 22, 2014 @ 12:00 am
Light rail trip. Join Barbara Ross for a tour by light rail into the 19th century. Meet at the Bordentown RiverLINE light rail station at 9:15 am (turn left into parking lot at 100 W. Park Street at Prince Street, above the boat landing), purchase tickets, and receive a brief introduction before boarding the train for Trenton. The train follows the path of the D&R Canal from Crosswicks Creek to Trenton. See the abandoned canal, Watson’s Creek and the Abbott Marshlands. In the City of Trenton, where Rt. 129 is on the former route of the canal, remains of the industrial and commercial buildings can compared with earlier photos. Participants will get an overview of places that are difficult to see any other way, but anyone expecting a leisurely guided tour will be disappointed. In Trenton, participants may opt for a guided walk (3/4 mile round trip) to the State Street Bridge over the former canal (now the Trenton Freeway). Two-hour tickets are $1.50 ($.70 for seniors). Please bring exact change. Pre-registration is strongly advised; call 609-924-2683 after February 12th. This D&R Canal Watch trip is co-sponsored by the Friends for the Abbott Marshland, Bordentown City Environmental Commission, and D&R Greenway Land Trust.
