The Delaware Canal is a great place to take a scenic walk, ride your bike, or go for a run. The towpath runs 60 miles from Easton to Bristol and has plenty of parking lots/ pull off points along the main road so that you...More

When the paths are mowed the walking experience is terrific. The paths run alongside the Delaware river and there are some beautiful vistas. The path is quite flat so it is easy to traverse by bike or by foot. My only complaint is that there...More

We parked in the car park opposite Bowman's Wildflower Reserve and walked the towpath into New Hope and back, which is about 4.2 miles round trip. This part of the walk is quite close to the road so there is a certain amount of traffic...More

We decided to bike ride along the trail. So much fun following the canal. Pretty scenery, especially in the Spring and Fall with flowers or leaves changing. Just a special day for family or lovers.

Parts of the canal were stagnated as the water was at a standstill. Nice path to walk along and see another view of the town

We love the Delaware Canal, not only is it beautiful to walk along, the history is fascinating. The number of poor Irish immigrants worked on it for very little wages, and died in the process. They say all along the sides, the Irish workers are...More

The tow path from Yardley to Center Bridge is beautiful. Bike on a safe, flat, off road trail with architectural, nature, and water views.

I live near Washington Crossing, where there is still plenty of water in the canal. It's got a lovely trail that is about 4 feet wide. You'll see lots of other people walking dogs, biking, running or just walking. You'll see Canada geese and mallard...More

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.
