Walking the 34-Mile Lenape Trail in a Day in New Jersey

We did it.

On Sunday, Oct. 20, fellow Montclair resident Kevin Murphy and I [Dan Hurley] walked the entire 34 miles of the Lenape Trail in a single day.

At 6:15 a.m., with the sky dark and the full moon loitering above the western horizon, Kevin and I began our hike with friend Richard Sheinaus and Star-Ledger reporter Pete Genovese. Our starting place was the Route 1 and 9 drawbridge in Newark, with the Pulaski Skyway hulking overhead and the murky Passaic River passing below.

Strangely, all three of my companions were huge fans of the Pulaski’s rough beauty. Or maybe it wasn’t so strange, considering that these crazies had each agreed to join me before dawn on my quixotic quest to cross Essex County via its little-known urban walkway, the Lenape Trail
