Great biking trail. The NJ side is where we began. The trail is wide and the terrain is smooth with a few rocky spots, but very manageable. Tons of shade, which was great on a hot day like today. However, the PA side was quite different. After crossing the foot bridge, you have to walk or ride on the road for a short distance to get to the trail. Pretty much full sun and the trail is much narrower than the NJ side. The middle of the trail was a raised grassy area, so had to stay on one side in a line.

we biked most of this due to a foot injury, but would be great without a bike also. nice level path with great views of the river.

Parked on River Road just passed the Black Bass Hotel. Kid friendly- with our family of 5 and 4 year old newly without training wheels. A couple picnic tables where we stared. Nice views of the river, many bridges to cross, beautiful homes. Historical markers. Path narrowed after the first mile or so to a thin gravel path on wider grass/slightly muddy path. About 2.5 miles in at Walters Nursery- a nice patch of grass to pull off on for a break and snacks. Dilly’s at Center Bridge (8 min drive) was recommended to us for lunch + ice cream (but they were very busy when we arrived). We continued onto Moo Hope Ice Cream in New Hope.

Great walk on a fall morning! The NJ side is in a bit better shape than the PA side, but both are satisfactory. It’s totally flat but sometimes you want that. Would be excellent for biking, too.

PA side was nice. No shade unfortunately but you could see a lot of things including the river. Then we crossed the walking bridge to bull island trail for a little. The trail was nicer to ride. It was in the shade, wider, flatter, but you couldn’t see the river or too much because of the tree shade. Overall though I love this place!

We did eastern half of the PA side today, from the Stockton bridge halfway up and back down again. It was a very pretty walk, flat and easy, mostly firm dirt, shaded, very few mush areas, about 25 feet above Delaware River water level between the river and an abandoned canal, pretty well isolated from the adjacent River Road and very lightly traveled with a few walkers, bikers. Not too much color today but I don't think the leaves are destined for that this year. I suspect the peak may be next weekend. I don't think the segment on the north/east side of the Delaware (NJ side) is open this time of year, it was fenced off going both ways at the bridge. Parked on Bridge Street in Stockton, walked over the bridge, went down the stairs on the left and made a right onto the trail. There is a parking area on the PA side maybe a mile north/west of the Stockton bridge which was open with open rest rooms. Very pretty and pleasant, esp in today's crisp air, though no to-die-for views. Definitely a 4+ star easy trail, but not 5. We had a nice lunch at the Milford House Inn in Milford NJ about 12 miles north. The Centre Bridge Inn is right at the PA side of the Stockton bridge but it was not open for lunch today. Apparently nowhere else in Stockton for a lunch with servers. New Hope, PA is just south.
