Lawrence Hopewell Trail

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

Lawrence Hopewell Trail currently runs for 17 miles on public and private lands in Lawrence and Hopewell townships, about five miles north of Trenton. Trail planners hope to complete the trail, which will form a 22-mile loop, in 2016.

The trail links business districts, parks, schools, historic villages, and playing fields, and offers views of farmland and woodlands. At the Lawrence Township end, the trail links to the Delware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail. The LHT is broken into segments, each with its own unique historic and natural features. The open sections lie mainly on the west side of the loop, with one small open section on the east side of the loop. You can read more about them on the LHT website (link to the right under "Related Links").
