Debbie: “I’m not very outdoorsy.” A.J.: “I get her out as much as I can. We’ve both been on the Appalachian Trail a couple of times backpacking. We like the Lake Lenape area down on Mays landing. We go kayaking there often. We are up here from the Philadelphia area for the weekend. We spent last night in Lambertville. We did the canal path about 12 miles with our bikes. And today our plan was to just head down here. We parked our bikes near Alexander Road and we’re going to put our kayak’s in here near Kingston and just meander down the canal, then hop on our bikes and check out Princeton for a little bit.”

Gavin: “I like Washington’s Crossing, too. It’s got extensive trails. Also, I really like hiking the Sourland Mountains in Hopewell.” Meghan: “I like Washington’s Crossing. Bald Pate Mountain is a great place to hike because you get a really good workout. And also you feel like you are away.”

“We love walking along the tow path. Either down to Kingston, or up to Harrison Street, or even as far as Alexander Road. And then just strolling through the streets of Princeton, Nassau Street and the Princeton Campus, as well as the area behind the Battlefield are more of our favorites.”

“In this area, my favorite places are along the D&R canal. I love riding the path with my bike. Going south, I have made it as far as Trenton, and in the other direction, I have gone very far past Kingston.”
