From my memory (which may be going south
) the ECG uses the Raritan canal part of the D&R not the part that parallels the delaware river from frenchtown area north through Bulls island. As I think the ECG is coming from NYC area (not sure if they use a train to go from NYC to Penn Station-Newark).
The entire D&R canal is somewhat in the 60 mile range but the section that the ECG on is less, as you state, 28 miles. Of course, parts of the D&R canal have been washed out due the serious flooding we've had the last few years, I haven't ridden that path in awhile so hopefully the towpath is in better shape now. I don't know the current status though.
