2nd Fridays in Upper Bucks - Raubsville to Easton

  • Join state park educator Ian Kindle for an 8 mile towpath hike. Love to hike near the Delaware River? What better way to spend Valentines Day morning than on the Delaware Canal Towpath!

    While not technically in Upper Bucks, this section of towpath in lower Northampton county is just across the border. This will be a moderate paced hike on the Delaware Canal State Park towpath. Meet at 10 am in the lower parking lot of Theodore Roosevelt Recreation Area (aka Ground Hog Lock, Locks 22-23), Rt 611, Raubsville, PA. We will take a brief tour of the area and learn about the locks and hydroelectric generation plant, then head north on the towpath. Approximately 8 miles to Wy Hit Tuk park and back.

    We'll take a look at recent canal repairs and how the river impacts the towpath. Bring lunch or a hearty snack and water. Hike cancels in the event of rain or heavy snow. If snow is on the ground, bring cross country skiis or borrow our snow shoes. In this case, distance may be shortened.

    AMC 2nd Fridays in Upper Bucks Hike - Raubsville to Easton, scheduled to occur on Friday, February 14,[masked]:00 AM has been cancelled. Please update your plans accordingly.

    It's not likely the parking lot at our meeting location will be sufficiently plowed for us to park there tomorrow morning. There will be an alternate bring your own cross country ski trip or borrow a pair of the park's snow shoes event at 10 am (or 11 if travel conditions are difficult). We will meet at the park office at 11 Lodi Hill Rd., Upper Black Eddy, PA. Please e-mail if you decide to come so I will know to wait for you.

    This will likely be cancelled due to parking/plowing issues at the site. If you are still interested in getting out to do some snowshoeing or cross country skiing please let me know.

      Hi Beth! AMC rules state that hikes have to be advertised as dogs allowed to be fair to those who might not want to hike with dogs. Unfortunately I didn't post this one as welcome to dogs. Many of the towpath hikes we run at Delaware Canal do allow dogs. You can find more at http://www.meetup.com...­­ for the Southeastern PA State Park Programs meetup group.
