Enjoy a morning walk along the main canal towpath in Somerset with the D & R's historian. We'll meet at the Demott Lane Footbridge off Easton Avenue at 10:00 am and head north toward Five Mile Lock for a 3-mile round trip tour along the historic towpath. Come enjoy the park, burn a few calories and learn a bit about the D&R! This level (but slightly rocky) walk will take about 2 hours. Inclement weather WILL cancel this meetup. NOTE: Parking will be limited at the D&R lot but some overflow should be available at the Van Wickle House. Due to limited parking I have to cap this walk at 20. If you sign-up and then have a later conflict, please make sure to change your RSVP to "NO" to allow an opening to those on the waitlist.
