Pennsylvania's State Parks recently won a gold medal ranking as one of America's finest park systems. SE PA parks offer a wealth of innovative programs that draw people into state parks in new ways and connect them to nature through outdoor experiences. From a nature walk to backpacking, a kids' camp to rock climbing, park educators, volunteers, and friends groups offer activities galore. Join us to find out more!
Join us for a 7.5 mile loop hike along both the Delaware Canal State Park towpath and the Delaware & Raritan Canal towpath! This hike will cover the areas of New Hope, Lambertville, Stockton & Centre Bridge. We will be rewarded along the way with beautiful views of the Delaware River, both canals & two unique bridges. There is a very good possibility that we will observe bald eagles or other raptors & waterfowl on this hike!
We'll meet at Canal Path Park (about 1.3 miles north of Bridge Street in New Hope, PA) at 10 AM and hike at a moderate pace for 3-4 hours, stopping at Prallsville Mills County Park, NJ for lunch after ~5 miles of hiking.
Please dress in non-cotton layers, bring at least 2 liters of water, and pack a hearty snack or lunch. Option to buy food in Stockton, NJ just before our lunch break.
