Historic mid-19th Century African-American burial ground with markers and plaques that tell the history. Call ahead to arrange for the cemetery to be open and an historian to meet you there. (201-336-7267) Can be shortened by starting or ending at the GW Bridge. Lunch at Palermo's Cafe & Bakery immediately after your history lesson, then pass through Maywood – a delightful little town. No bathrooms at the site, so take advantage of the ones at mile 15 in the Community Center.
