A beautiful 60-mile long path for running and biking

The Delaware Canal is a 60-mile path along a historic canal that runs parallel to the Delaware River. The canal runs from Bristol (closer to Philly) all the way to Easton, near Bethlehem, PA. One of the most scenic parts of the canal starts in the Lower Bucks County town of Yardley with an access point on Black Rock Road. Ride from Yardley to New Hope, a famous town in the area for its art and only 10 miles north, at any time of the year! 

You can also fish along the canal! 

For out of towners, you can GoogleMaps search the access point with free parking with "Delaware Canal Black Rock Road Access."

The River

Grew up not far from here and loved walking/running along the canal! I also used to geocache in this area, which is very saturated with caches!
