Welcome to the beTween Walk
The FreeWalkers 4th Annual "beTween Walk" (formerly just the "Tween Walk") occurred on Saturday April 19, 2014. About 35 FreeWalkers walked the same East Coast Greenway and Middlesex Greenway trails for about 12 miles from New Brunswick to Metropark Station, Iselin. This walk is designed to pick up where the Great Canal Walk leaves off in New Burnswick and end where the 50-mile Big Walk begins on May 10, 2014. All three walks combined enable one to complete the Cross-Jersey Walking Challenge of walking 100 miles on the East Coast Greenway across the entire state in 2014. Thanks to Bob Quinlan for leading the event this year!
This walk is a relatively easy 12-mile walk through towns, streets, county roads, parks and new community trails like the Middlesex Greenway. The trail plenty has plenty to offer in unique sightseeing surprises along the way. Over the last few years, a new natural trail along the Middlesex Greenway (former rail bed) now offers less streetside walking. Near the end the Edison Monument is undergoing a facelift and its small museum is now open to the public.
Here's a recap of 2011 walk
