69.5 miles - Crushed Stone, Gravel - The Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail follows the towpath of the canal, which was built in the early 1830s as a transportation corridor between Philadelphia and New York. Along the route you'll find 19th-century bridges and bridge-tender houses, remnants of locks, cobblestone spillways and hand built stone-arch culverts. You can even rent canoes at Griggstown and Princeton if you prefer the water route.

The trail runs continuously for nearly 70 miles and is shaped like a “V” with Trenton at its center. It connects many other towns along the way, including Frenchtown, Lambertville, Ewing Township, Princeton, Franklin Township, and New Brunswick. It’s also part of the developing East Coast Greenway trail network that runs from Maine to Florida.

In Trenton, trail users can cross the Delaware River on the historical Calhoun Street Bridge to enter Morrisville, PA, and connect to the incredibly scenic 70-mile Delaware Canal Towpath.

South of Trenton, a short, disconnected segment of trail runs between John A. Roebling Memorial Park and Hamilton Marshes.

Note: Periodically parts of the trail become impassable from floods and other damage.
