In the first of a series highlighting beautiful, walkable locations in Princeton, NJ, we focus on a site at the north-eastern corner of the town: the dam at Lake Carnegie. Lake Carnegie, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a beautiful, man-made lake, constructed in 1905-1906 by damming the Millstone River. The D&R canal tow-path, runs along the southern side of the lake, is a fantastic trail for walkers, joggers, cyclists. It is also popular with bird-watchers and people who like to fish.
