Morris Canal Greenway Hike in Bloomfield

Morris Canal Greenway Hike in Bloomfield

Join Morris Canal enthusiasts Rich Rockwell and Ron Rice for a three-mile hike following the path of the Morris Canal in Bloomfield. The 3.5-hour tour starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday, November 5 and includes a bus ride to additional sites where the canal remains intact. The hike includes Bloomfield’s newest park, Morris Canal Park at Oak Tree Lane and a newly reclaimed section between Pilch Street and Watchung Avenue, the result of the efforts of local Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts. The tour is co-sponsored by the Bloomfield Morris Canal Greenway Committee and the Bloomfield Recreation Department. Reservations are required and a $5 donation covers bus costs and a 20-page handout containing historic photos and color maps. To reserve a space, email MorrisCanal@gmail.com.
