The 60-mile-long Delaware Canal towpath extends from Easton to Bristol, Pennsylvania, and has been designated a National Recreation Trail. Once trod by mule teams pulling cargo boats along the canal, the towpath today is used by hikers, walkers, joggers, bicyclists, cross-country skiers, and birders.
The towpath in Pennsylvania parallels the feeder canal of the Delaware and Raritan Canal for 30 miles. The two trails, which are separated only by the Delaware River, are linked by six bridges.
