Walking the Boards: End-to-End

Walking the Boards: End-to-End
By Greg Kelly •
For many county residents the best time to be out exercising is the brisk spring season. One of the better local treks is the North End-to-West End circuit in Long Branch.

As measured by the Atlantic Ocean promenade-boardwalk route, it’s just under four miles and Monmouth County runners and walkers have been making the trip for years.

“It’s the perfect distance for me,” one dedicated walker told me. “The view is always pleasurable and the air is fresh. It’s really soothing. I can relax and exercise at the same time.” And be sure to note the smart sshops along stylish Pier Village—stop back later after your workout.


It is exercise alone that supports the spirits, and keeps the mind in vigor.
