Happy Summer, Mercerites!
Part of what we love about Mercer County is the abundance of parks, trails, farms and open space. It’s gorgeous and offers loads of healthy free fun. We polled readers on Facebook and here’s what you’ve shared as favorite parks and trails around the area!
Maps and guides to area trails:
- D&R Greenway Land Trust
- Lawrence Hopewell Trail
- Lawrence Township Trail Guide
- Friend of Hopewell Valley Open Space’s Guide to Walking Trails in Hopewell Valley

While you’re out enjoying nature take pictures and enter those into a photography project being jointly requested through partnership of the New Jersey Trails Association (NJTA), D&R Greenway Land Trust and Princeton Photography Club (PPC). Details HERE.
Here’s a website with all the Revolutionary War sites in Mercer County. Our history-buff reader also recommends this book. For a little extra cash, the Princeton Historical Society offers guided historic walking tours of Princeton.
