Description

The 60-mile long Delaware Canal towpath is a National Recreation Trail that travels between Easton and Bristol. Back in the day, it was used by mule teams pulling boats along the canal. Today this route is used by cyclists as well as hikers, runners and bird watchers.

The route is not technically challenging and gains less than 150 feet of elevation over its entire distance.
