Suburbanized trail with many nice homes right on the canal. (5 miles) This section of the Delaware Canal is very suburbanized, with many very nice homes right on the canal. Most of the homes have canoes in the back yard, clearly owned by people who fully appreciate the waterway. The town of New Hope is a beautiful and interresting community on the canal and is well worth a stop. There is a working barge, the New Hope & Ivyland Railroad, shops, restaurants and Bed & Breakfasts. As with the entirety of the canal towpath, the surface is of a crushed red stope, is even, smooth and flat. Crossing the bridge at New Hope and returning North to Bulls Island makes a loop of 13.6 miles.

A great relaxing walk, with plenty to do in cozy nearby towns!

With Ed, Mair, Joe. Started at parking lot at Hendricks Island and went up and over to Bulls Island in NJ to Lambertville where we ate breakfast. After breakfast walked over to New Hope, Pa and took the towpath back to Hendricks Island Parking Lot.
