Participants were escorted through the city intersections by the Trenton Police Department and toured notable sights such as the New Jersey State House, Trenton Battle Monument, and picturesque views from the D&R Canal tow path and newly completed East Coast Greenway “missing link” —which makes Canal Park a continuous 60-mile recreational path.
