Take a walk, buddy.
Aug 2021
Among the endless diversions on both sides of the Delaware River , in Bucks and Hunterdon Counties, there is nothing more relaxing and refreshing than a walk along the towpath on the Delaware Canal. Slow down. What's your hurry? Enjoy.

Delaware Canal and Uhlerstown Covered Bridge
Oct 2020 • Couples
A reminder of the days when canal boats were used to transport goods to nearby rivers, pulled by mules along the tow path next to the canal. Uhlerstown Covered Bridge was built over the canal in 1855, 110 feet.

Great for any time of the year

Highly recommended any time of the year. Loop trails over the Delaware River makes for different views. Great for morning walks, afternoon biking and evening hikes. Best time of the year is mid to late October when the trees start to turn vibrant colors.

Shaded and flat

We road from lambertville to Stockton on bikes on the tow path.. it’s very nice and shaded. We saw lots of turtles. The trail is used by many people. Be kind and get a bell for your bike to let people know your behind them. We walked our bikes over the bridges and had wonderful view.

Relaxing to walk, even in ligt rain
May 2019
The former tow paths on the Delaware Canal are well maintained, so you can take a stroller, maybe not very high heels, but moderate should be ok, just in case the walk is a spontanous idea after a more formal lunch in Lambertville or New Hope. I have walked there in all seasons, and enjoyed the trees, the grass, some wild flowers, and the tranquility of the canal.

Walking along a peaceful canal
Oct 2019 • Solo
Stopping over in Hope for a rest and a walk along the old canal is a very good choice for a stop on the way during a long car trip. Nice scenery with the historical trains at the station and peaceful nature and lots of birds on the water.

Great scenery and lovely bike path
Sep 2019
Great way to see the countryside by biking on the path along the canal - you can go for miles and stop at quaint spots to have a bite.

great place to walk
Sep 2019
This is a great walk, very pleasant and historically interesting. You will see two and a half, maybe three centuries of architecture along the canal.

Needs Work

Welcome to the Delaware Canal at New Hope. It is full of green, stagnant, mosquito infested water. The historical plaques give great history just watch the cyclists. Some can so very rude. You need to walk single file or you get run over. The NJ is much better
