“Pedals on the tow Path”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

We biked from New Hope along the canal north and south and crossed over to the Jersey side to return. The PA side is much more scenic but in a sadder state of repair and without the basic amenities that we have come to expect (and much more prevalent on the NJ side) like mile markers, benches, drinking water. Not even lock numbers.

“Beautiful Views!”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Beautiful during autumn time, winter, spring and summer, this is a very scenic and beautiful canal to take photographs of, walk around, picnic.

A must see if in the area for sure! Can be a very romantic spot!

“Wonderful Park”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

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.

“Not a scenic walk or bike”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

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.

“Love to bike the canal tow path!”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

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.
