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.

In the middle of New Hope, PA is the canal towpath, ideal to walk,run, ride a horse or bike! 60 miles in length! just a 1/2 block from our Wedgwood Inn b&b of New Hope, PA

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.
