NJ Freeholders- Fund the Capital to the Coast Trail

This petition had 842 supporters

The Capital to Coast Trail is a 55-mile cross-state multi-use trail network that is designed to span the state of New Jersey (west to east) from the Delaware River in Trenton to the beach front town of Manasquan on the Atlantic Ocean. The cross-state trail concept was conceived in 2000 by Fred Lockenmeyer and Rudy Buser, of Manasquan, the founding members of the Friends of the Capital to the Coast Trail. When finished the trail will be the third longest in the state, behind the Delaware and Raritan Canal Trail and the Appalachian Trail.

As of August 20, 2008 the Capital to Coast Trail is incomplete, existing mostly on paper; however on June 16, 2006, the initial segment was dedicated with a ribbon cutting ceremony at Allaire State Park where the existing 30+ year old Edgar Felix Bikeway became the first segment. On August 20, 2008, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held to open a second 2.5-mile section in West Windsor off Old Trenton Road.

The Freeholders have the power to budget money for the trail, and also have access to federal grants to complete the trail.  We need YOUR SIGNATURES to show to NJ Freeholders that this greenway is important to the people; for cyclists, pedestrians, runners, equestrians, and anyone else who wants a nice walk on a car free trail.
