LHT King's Highway

Description

The King’s Highway segment of the LHT, owned and managed by Lawrence Township, begins on the east side of Province Line Road south of the intersection with Route 206. The off-road trail is paved and runs adjacent to Province Line road for 0.65 miles to a signed crossing at Bannister Drive. The LHT crosses to the west side of Province Line Road and continues on Bannister Drive for 0.3 miles. At the intersection with Foxcroft Drive, the trail turns south and continues for 0.4 miles to Princeton Pike.

At the intersection of Province Line Road and Route 206, the LHT crosses the historic King’s Highway, which has been recognized as a National Register of Historic Places historic district. The intersection was once known as Cox’s Corner, and is one of the oldest continually used roadways in the nation. The route follows a Native American trail and has been a transportation corridor across central New Jersey since colonial times.
