beauty of the Pennsylvania shore along the Delaware Wild and Scenic River; revisits Christmas night 1776, when George Washington made his historic crossing of an icy Delaware River; and vividly recalls life and work on the Delaware River Canal (1831–1932). Due to the narrowness of the road, tight curves, and limited parking turnouts, this drive does not lend itself to travel by recreational vehicles or trailers. This drive follows the Delaware River and its associated canal north upstream through an engaging canyon of mature forest, cliffs, fields, residential areas of eighteenth-and nineteenth-century homes, and historic towns and villages. The tour concludes at Centre Square in Easton—a hub for events in early American history. Special attractions: Washington Crossing Historic Park; river/canal access and views; locks, aqueducts, and lockkeeper houses; the National Canal Museum; pedestrian bridge to the New Jersey shore; Nockamixon Cliffs This eTrail is a complete description of a scenic drive with a route map and information on the best travel seasons, interesting sites, recreation opportunities, camping locations, and much more.
