Nice Day

Nice day to take a walk along the Delaware Canal. Very peaceful and pleasing on the eye. Beautiful flowers that grow at the canal's edge as you stroll down the way.

Great way to spend the day biking or walking along the canal. We usually do the Lambertville side but either way a relaxing way to spend time.

A great way to spend a quiet afternoon along a pretty bike path. Good for walking and bike riding. Flat. Little towns along the way.

The canal itself is a very popular place in New Hope for their mule drawn barge rides. But, I think the best part of the canal is the towpath. Whether you walk or ride your bike, the trail is 60 miles long and very easy travelling. Check out its history at taillink.com.

We rode the 6 miles from Lambertville to Washington's Crossing and back in a couple of hours. Then a late lunch on the river in New Hope. Nice Sunday afternoon.

This is a nice place to visit, beautiful scenery. There is a lot to do in the area - boating, kayaking, hiking and biking.

Very nice and well kept. I wish people would take the time to throw their trash away. Some litter just spoils some of the experiences.

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!
