Lawrence Hopewell Trail, Lawrence & Hopewell Township, Mercer County

The Lawrence Hopewell Trail (LHT) is a bicycle and pedestrian recreational trail and transportation corridor through public and private lands in Lawrence and Hopewell Townships, Mercer County, New Jersey encompassing 20+ miles.  The LHT was conceived nearly 15 years ago by employees of the Bristol-Myers Squibb Lawrenceville campus in 2001 and then quickly embraced by staff from Educational Testing Service (ETS).
