Bristol is a sleepy small town located right on the Delaware River. There are lots of neat historic houses all with the address of 1628 or 1628 is the year the town started. Adjacent to the town is Maple Beach Park which is not on any map because it's owned by Rohm and Haas. We've seen busy beavers and great blue herons here in the winter.
We'll start off walking the through the park which has a few lakes or ponds. I especially like part of the hike where we walk right along the Delaware. Afterwards we'll take a spin around the town, head down to the D & R Canal path and the Green Lane Amish Market which is supposed to be great.
We'll hike for 3-4 hours covering 7-10 miles. Mostly flat. I've found a great eating, drinking place nearby: The Newportville Inn. Serves German style food.
Caution: You should be able to walk 3-4 hours without much of a break.
You should have recently hiked 7 miles in conditions detailed above. Hills, bushwhacking, & rocky conditions. Hilly Hikes Warning:
