This trail is close to and has access from New Brunswick / Piscataway and Highland Park. Easy to enter from Johnson Park. Hardly any crowds, no incline and perfect for running and cycling. Also cool as you get to spot turtles, fishes and sometimes snakes in the canal.

Where Princeton goes to stretch its legs. You can take the tow path in bite-size bits, from Frenchtown PA to Millstone NJ, or combine a bunch of them. The Princeton to Kingston stretch runs alongside Lake Carnegie. The D&R makes for pleasant, non-strenuous (it's dead level the whole way) walking or biking.

I have walked this section and well as biking it. It nice and flat for the most part. Fairly well maintained. It's very nice during the spring and summer.

Great trail with beautiful scenery. I biked around 20 miles on this trail and it's very easy and pleasant, no up or downhills but every now and then you will have to cross over a rocky section but it's not many. I saw some people fishing and some people just walking or running. Overall it was a lot of fun and a great multi-use trail

Best for hiking and riding during the weekdays particularly in the morning if your schedule permits...the park is less crowded. I try to stay away during weekends as it gets too crowded.
