Walking at Washington Crossing Historic Park

Visitors can explore forests, fields, and historic structures along several pathways throughout both sections of the park, including the historic Taylorsville Village.

The 60-mile long Delaware Canal State Park towpath runs from Easton to Bristol with a five-mile section that connects the lower and upper portions of Washington Crossing Historic Park. The towpath is part of the 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, and bird watchers.

It can be accessed from Washington Crossing Historic Park at SR 532 in the lower section or at the Thompson-Neely House of the upper section.
