The D&R Canal Tow Path Ride

The D& R Canal Towpath is the perfect place for a family friendly ride with spectacular views of the Delaware River and the canal. During the warmer months, be on the lookout for eagles, herons and swans. You'll also see people relaxing and tubing down the river and kayakers.

The path is surfaced with compacted grit, providing a smooth enjoyable ride. You’ll travel alongside the beautiful Delaware River past historic lockkeeper houses, stone arched culverts and an range of wildlife. Along the way, you can visit the quaint “river towns” of Frenchtown, Stockton and Lambertville. Stop for a bite to eat, visit interesting shops, or just chat with the locals.

 

Where to start your ride: There are many access points along the towpath. Starting in Frenchtown, you leave your car in the park and ride lot at Front & Bridge Streets. There are also several parking areas as you travel along Route 29 from Frenchtown to Lambertville.
