The Delaware Canal extends from Bristol to Easton on the Pennsylvania side of the river. The tow path, along side of the canal, was utilized by mules to pull barges between these locations. It currently becomes a wonderful walkway with spectacular views of the river. The tow path along the canal frequently weaves slightly inland.
A most important tip is entering the tow path. There are multiple points. The Thompson Neely House is an entrance point near us that provides an excellent walk between River Road and New Hope to the north and River Road and Washington Crossing to the south.
Fresh snow provides a very special cross country skiing opportunity that is extraordinary. Alas,only a few of these opportunities exist each year. We love the canal and tow path...our property borders it.
