Delaware Canal State Park


The 60-mile long Delaware Canal towpath runs from Easton to Bristol and is a National Heritage Hiking Trail. Once used by mule teams pulling cargo-laden boats along the canal, the towpath is used today by walkers, joggers, cyclists, cross-country skiers and bird watchers. For 30 miles, the Delaware Canal towpath parallels New Jersey's D&R Canal towpath, separated only by the Delaware River. Six bridges link the two trails.

The Delaware Canal path consists of crushed, packed stone and is better maintained then the NJ trail. The trail literally cuts through private property and at times we can find ourselves in homeowners’ backyard only a few feet from their house. For this reason, it's recommend that you do not disturb the residents or cut through their yard to get to the street. A mountain bike with universal tires is recommended
