The canal path is a pleasant relaxing ride for all ages. The terrain is flat and fast and perfect for mountain or cyclocross bikes.

My rating of this "thing to do" is based on historical significance, not hiking, biking, or boating. I learned a little about the canal from the New Hope friend I was visiting, since we kept crossing it as we went other places over the weekend....More

The towpath is great for biking, walking, or jogging. Just look out for spiderwebs beneath the bridges. Be sure to check out the lock keepers house at the entrance to town.

Most importantly, if they have water in the canal, it is a pleasant experience. Some portions of path are very well cared for while other areas are uneven and worn. Geese in the spring are aggressive and dirty.

Very serene, level walkways along the canal. Great scenery, always ducks and frogs. Most of the walk is shaded so youre out of the sun. It's very safe with always other walkers.

It's a nice walk; you see the locks and the setting is idyllic. The water is very stagnant--not so beautiful. But, a good diversion for a half hour or so.

I don't recall there being any bike rentals around. I wasn't really looking for them though. The area isn't that big where you might need a bike to get around. Well my opinion. We walked to see everything.
