The first half of the Lawrence Hopewell Trail in Carson Road Woods Park is now complete!

The reddish brown stone dust trail begins at a small parking lot on Carson Road in Lawrence  Township, just opposite the northern edge of Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Lawrenceville campus. The trail follows the woodline at first before turning and going deeper into the park. At present, the trail goes back about three-quarters of a mile. Construction of the remaining LHT segment has begun and is expected to be completed in the fall of 2011.  If you are visiting the park, there are also other hiking trails meandering through the woods, some are wood chip and others are simply mowed or traditional earthen trails.

Construction of the connecting segment across Carson Road at Bristol-Myers Squibb is expected to begin in August, 2011. THis trail segment will wind through the trees away from the road along the border of Bristol-Myers Squibb until the end of their property near Province Line Road and Route 206.

Get outside and ride the trail!
