Starting at the New Jersey Running Company-Princeton, this route is a trail run, with a little road.
This 6 mile run will take you off the pavement for 4 out of 6 miles. The first mile runs along the road, heading north towards Community Park South, where you’ll reach the trails just after the mile marker. You’ll pass Community Park North, Palmer Lake, and loop around the John Witherspoon Woods near the 3 mile marker. Running through dense tree-coverage, you’ll reach the highest point of the route at the 3 mile marker, then head back down towards town. On the return route, you’ll run along the west side of Palmer Lake before retracing your steps back along the road to the NJRC-Princeton store, where the run comes to an end.
