Delaware and Raritan Canal Trail Itinerary
Travel alongside two historic canals systems that stretch from New Brunswick to Trenton and from Trenton to Frenchtown and imagine a time when mules hauled cargo on this scenic route. See remnants of a bygone era in the form of wooden bridges, locks, stone-arched culverts, and small towns that played a huge role in American history. Also an important wildlife corridor, this 69-mile trail offers something for everyone.
Lambertville is accessible via Transbridge Lines from Doylestown, New Hope and New York.

The D&L Trail on the Pennsylvania side of the Delaware River gives access via the bridges at New Hope-Lambertville, Washington Crossing, and Morrisville-Trenton. Walk your bike on the footwalk on the bridges. East Coast Greenway links to this tour at Trenton. Visit www.greenway.org
