About the Morris Canal Greenway

The Morris Canal was built from 1825 to 1831 to transport Pennsylvania coal to markets in New Jersey and New York. Known as the “Mountain Climbing Canal," it overcame an elevation change of 1,674 feet over the entire northern part of New Jersey through the use of inclined planes. This feature alone makes the Morris Canal a national engineering marvel. The canal stretches 102 miles across six counties: Warren, Sussex, Morris, Passaic, Essex and Hudson. It traverses many different types of communities and landscapes, from urban to suburban to rural. The canal is a significant historic feature and is listed on the New Jersey and National Registers of Historic Places. 

For years Passaic County communities have been working independently to preserve their historic Morris Canal sites. The goal of the new Morris Canal Greenway is to bring these projects together into a county-wide history and recreation pathway.
