Total Bike Tour Length: 15 mile loop with 7+ miles in New Jersey and about 7 miles in
The Delaware Canals Washington Crossing Loop Bike Tour is about 15 total miles. Everybody, from history enthusiasts to families with kids will enjoy this bike ride that travels along the Delaware River in two states and features two well-known state historic parks, two canal towpath trails, nature preserves, and colonial towns connected by picturesque bridges. Every season offers a different perspective to this classic bike ride through American History.
Starting out on the D&R Canal State Park Feeder Trail at the trailhead in Lambertville, New Jersey, you'll ride your bike south on the canal towpath trail for 7 miles to Washington Crossing State Park. Here, a bridge with a pedestrian walkway takes you across the Delaware River to Washington Crossing Historic Park where you connect to the Delaware Canal State Park Trail that runs along the Pennsylvania side of the River. To complete the loop, you'll cycle north on the canal towpath trail for about 7 miles to New Hope, PA where you will re-cross the Delaware River via the New Hope-Lambertville Bridge into Lambertville and back to your starting point.
The D&R Trail in NJ and Delaware Canal Trail in PA both provide a valuable wildlife corridor and habitat for a variety of wildlife and migrating birds. A sampling of some of the wildlife the observant rider may see on the bike tour includes whitetail deer, river otter, fox, beaver, various turtle species, wild turkey, ducks, geese, pheasant, red-tailed hawk, bald eagle, egret, great blue heron, ruby-throated hummingbird and numerous songbirds.
