About Lawrence Hopewell Trail (LHT)

The Lawrence Hopewell Trail is a 22+ mile trail winding through Hopewell and Lawrence Townships. It offers safe, off-road access for kids, families, bicyclists, joggers, hikers and commuters who want to enjoy the great outdoors. The family-oriented trail belongs to all of us and is designed to promote recreation, healthier lifestyles, better mobility and commuting, and a cleaner environment. Hundreds of your neighbors support the trail and we hope you will too. The trail is a community asset; we want you and your family to use and enjoy it!

The LHT is made up of your neighbors, community leaders and two major area employers. It started in 2001 when a group of community leaders met at Bristol-Myers Squibb to address concerns about diminishing opportunities for safe, off-road biking and walking. State, county and local government representatives and several private organizations including ETS, joined the group, and an independent nonprofit organization was formed to investigate the possibility of constructing a biking and walking trail. This unique collaboration of government, business, the non-profit sector, and residents developed a strategic plan to construct and maintain the LHT.
