This is a scenic, quiet place stretching for miles-canal on one side and the river on the other. I enjoy starting from Stockton and prefer to NJ side(the PA side has little water in the canal). You can also begin from Lambertville or Frenchtown.

Now that my children are getting older, the canal is a wonderful way to meander all together. Safe yet challenging (don't fall in the water when it's there!) and often much of the canal is near pizza and ice cream!!! Easy to find places for picnics. We also center as much as we can on doing loops utilizing the new jersey/pennsylvania canals. Just wonderful and so lucky to have it!!

Drive north from New Hope along the river toward Easton and you will find various parks along the way where you can park the car and get out and walk the tow path. There are restaurants from the fancy Stockton Inn, to modest Bucks Bounty, as well as Dilly's (locally) famous ice cream stand. Park at the Black Bass and walk across the river to Bulls Island Park in NJ. At Tinicum park the canal moves away from the river inland, another good walking stop. The canal is not always right next to the River Road as it weaves back and forth. In Riegelsville one can dine between the river and the canal (choice of views!) at the Rieglesville Inn. We never get tired of exploring this area in all seasons and have been doing it for 20 years.
