The pass along the Delaware River Canal Is a excellent place for walking even for us who are over 60. Historic and peaceful wild life. We like it!

We stumbled upon this walk by accident - but what a pretty spot it turned out to be. Next time I will bring my bike as it seems to be the perfect way to explore this beautiful part of New Hope.

New Hope is a beautiful place to visit and you must take a very beautiful and peaceful walk on the canal when you go. I just love visiting here, the beauty, the people and the shopping is a AAA plus experience.

Get out and walk the Canal. Some areas are still being repaired but you can't beat the serenity of walking along the water. Miles of paths are open for your enjoyment. You can walk along Lambertville, Easton, Washington's Crossing. Bike or hike or run, get out and enjoy. Don't go another year without experiencing a site near so many people.... More

Weather was cold this year in early April, but there were still many birds to see and we could take a peaceful walk along the tow path from New Hope.

This 60-mile trip alongside the Delaware Canal is my go-to biking route on many of my spring-summer trips. A glorious little treasure from Easton, PA to Bristol.

It is so good to see the canal restored in most sections. This took quite some time , many years. Now bring on the bikes, the dog walking, etc. Enjoy the beauty of this state park.

We stayed in a guest house along the canal and road our bikes into New Hope one day along the dirt path. It was great fun and very scenic. Not buggy or crowded, just peaceful. Absolutely wonderful few days, and this was one of the highlights! Also, there is an old railroad bridge along the river that is climbable and... More

A gorgeous canal and walkway on the Nj side from lambertville down to titusville/washington crossing park. The area is so gorgeous and serene and worth a bike ride or stroll.
