On December 25, 1776, the icy waters of the Delaware River provided the setting for one of the pivotal events of the American Revolution. The Continental Army had little to celebrate that Christmas and seemed beat by hunger and cold. After crossing the rough winter river at night, General George Washington and the Continental Army landed at Johnsons Ferry, at the site now known as Washington Crossing State Park. At 4 am, they began their march to Trenton where they defeated the Hessian troops in an unexpected attack. This battle was quickly followed by the Second Battle of Trenton on January 2, 1777, and the Battle of Princeton on January 3, 1777.

Crushed gravel trail the whole way with partial sun partial shade. It is heavily traveled but everyone we met were polite. We started at Washington’s Crossing and went up to the Bulls run recreational center and crossed the foot bridge there into Pennsylvania. Always a beautiful ride! There are some parts of the towpath on the Pennsylvania side that are closed due to construction so we got kicked out onto the road for a little bit which was not necessarily bad as the gravel on the Pennsylvania side is not as groomed as the New Jersey side. We stopped at new Hope on the way back for lunch add that to your trip!

Rode this trail many times. I usually start at Washington's Crosssing and go up through Lambertville and past Stockton a 25 mile round trip. Trail is relatively flat. Beautiful scenery throughout. If your riding on the weekend expect alot of congestion leading in and after Lambertville. It's a must do and my go to spot
