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.
