It’s the same day we can celebrate the discovery of America while paying respect to the Native Americans who occupied and celebrated our natural land for many centuries before Columbus landed.
What’s unique about the LENAPE34 event is that it is free and open to the public who may choose to walk between Millburn and Newark along the Lenape Trail, all 34 miles or just sections of the route in support of the Revitalization of the Lenape Trail and for their own personal goals.
This walk goes through various New Jersey communities and is designed to take advantage of mass transportation to make participation easier on the participants and the environment. The Lenape Trail is a marked 34-mile trail that has also become a major segment of the ambitious Liberty Water Gap Trail that has been planned to provide a continuous trail of over 130 miles across the entire state – from the Delaware Water Gap to the Liberty State Park. It traverses populated and open natural areas, residential and city, parks and industrial areas on its meandering way. This provides a unique chance to experience communities up close and appreciate the uniqueness of our metropolitan area.
Again, the walk is FREE and its open to the public, but its purpose is to benefit the Lenape Trail with donations and membership to the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference , and to develop a larger public awareness of fitness and the need to plan and create communities that support activities such as walking, running, and cycling – instead of isolating us around roads, highways and industry.
