Plenty of nature photo options. From the rivers, rocks, trees, open plain areas, parks, and bridges.

The scenic byway along the eastern bank of the Delaware River is stunning, with the road running very close to the river many points and high above it at others. We traveled the length of the byway during foliage season, and it was one of our most memorable drives. The small park at the site of the Delaware-Hudson Canal is... More

This is a picturesque, idyllic, peaceful piece of nature only 2 1/2.hours from NYC. Cool your feet at many public access points in the Delaware River in both NY and PA. The sights are wondrous and included landscapes that are breathtaking, the Roebling bridge that preceded the Brooklyn bridge, The Zane Grey house, bear, deer, wild turkey, porcupines, skunks, raptors...

I live very close to the Delaware River and it is a beautiful pristine sight to behold on a nice sunny day! One can go canoeing or kayaking during the summer months, watch the geese and other wildlife while on the river.

The scenic byway (Route 97)has some breathtaking spots - especially the Hawks Nest - just north of Port Jervis. The foliage in the fall is spectacular. You can sometimes see bear, deer, fox, and bald eagles along the way. The Roebling Bridge (the oldest... More

I often kayak down the Delaware River from Narrowsburg, NY during the summer season. Never fail to see Eagles soaring or perched along the river bank I usually enjoy a 5-6 hour trip , depending on how long we linger along the banks or on a flat rock having lunch, from Narrowsburg launch to Lackawaxen, PA landing. What a fantastic... More

Small, old villages steeped in history, rolling hills, curvy roads, beautiful river where eagles soar. A lovely place to visit.

Just the right amount of class 2 rapids to make for a fun trip. Canoes were in good condition with adequate instruction for safety given by the staff.

The rapids are a bit mild, but if you're just looking for a canoe float or a raft with beers and summer sun, you've found it!
