What we're about

Look to find out what new, fun and free programs and projects are being hosted by the Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park. The park has an historian and naturalist on staff to offer weekend programs to the public and private programs to scout groups and school groups.

The D&R Canal State Park has over 70 miles of trail through central New Jersey. The historic towpath and rail trail provide a flat trail perfect for biking, walking and running, while the Six Mile Run Reservoir Site in Franklin Township, Somerset offers trails trails for mountain biking, hiking and horseback riding. There are two private canoe concessions along the canal, but the water is open for anyone to put in their canoe or kayak and enjoy a paddle in the quiet water of the canal.
