I come here a lot with my family and my dog. This canal is great. There is so much wildlife! I've seen beavers, turtles, deer, blue herons, a raccoon and many different kinds of birds. It is a great place to bird watch or to walk, ride a bike, or jog. I love it down here and I go at least once a week in the summer.

Our family walked along the canal briefly last week. The canal needs to be dredged or cleaned. It is not a scenic walk, plus the entire downtown area of New Hope was crowded and loud (apparently it is a favorite of motorcycle gangs). Better walks in Washington's Crossing State Park for sure.

In every season the NJ side of the canal tow path is wonderful for walking or bike riding. We bike ride as much as possible. It is flat so the bike ride is very easy. The views are different every day. Go and enjoy. Fall is my favorite time there.

Nice place to walk and see rabbits and chipmunks.Water gets very green in the summer. Colonial Americans used these canals as highways.

Beautiful walking/riding/jogging paths along this peaceful canal..... and intriguing vistas of the river to one side, and the canal to the other, with beautiful old houses to add to the beauty. But why, oh why, oh why-o is there no water in the canal in New Hope proper? It appears dammed just out of town, leaving a somewhat stinking, mosquito bog winding its way through town. Not attractive, or inviting.
