Detailed Trail Descriptions from Our Guidebooks

"This is an easy, flat hike. It is rated moderate due to its length. If you have two vehicles and want to shorten this hike, park one of your vehicles in the parking lot near Errico’s Market in Stockton, then drive south on Route 29 to the original parking lot starting point. This will give you a 4.8-mile hike. On the other hand, if you want to do the entire length, you need to know there is very little shade on this trail, so the earlier in the day you start the better, and once you get away from the towns, there is no place to get water. The bottom line is this is a great hike where you can explore the historic canal system, then hike across an historic bridge over the Delaware River, then pass through a number of quaint villages, where it will take all of your willpower not to linger."
