The Lawrenceville School segment of the LHT, owned and managed by the Lawrenceville School, travels through the school’s scenic 700 acre-campus. The segment begins as the trail crosses to the north side of Lewisville Drive and follows a gravel road along the perimeter of Woods Fields. Merging onto a paved road, the LHT turns north (right) as it heads into the main part of the Lawrenceville School. The trail passes the Getz Sports Complex and through a large parking lot adjacent to the Loucks Ice Center and Lavino Field House. Continuing through the campus, the LHT passes student residential buildings, and tennis complex before arriving at the main entrance to the campus at Lawrenceville Road (Route 206). At this time (April 2020) there is significant construction near the Ice Rink and Field House, closing the route through campus.
