Biking at Washington Crossing Historic Park

The 60-mile long Delaware Canal towpath runs from Easton to Bristol; and is part of the Delaware and Lehigh (D&L) Trail -- the foundation of the 165-mile Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.

Once trod by mule teams pulling cargo-laden boats along the canal, the towpath is used today by:

  • Walkers
  • Joggers
  • Bicyclists
  • Cross-country skiers
  • Bird watchers

The towpath connects the Upper and Lower sections of the park.
