Definitely worth a stop if in the area. It was interesting to see this old canal system. There is a nice walking path along the canal. I wouldn't make a special trip to see the canal, but if you are going to New Hope or...More

This is a wonderful NJ asset. A great place to walk or ride a bike and enjoy the surrounding woods any time of the year.

Took a pleasant walk along the canal. It is cool to see the locks even though they are not in use anymore. Very quiet and very romantic. Was just a pleasure to be away from the hustle and bustle of the world

Find an entrance to the towpath in New Hope or Lambertville and walk or bike for a unique activity when visiting. The towpath extends 60 miles and the scenery changes throughout. Would love to rent a bike in the future.

Very nice walk - beautiful paths and view - tho the water looked pretty stagnant, needed a good flushing while the canal on the Jersey side was pretty fast flowing.

Read up on the history of the canal. It is worth it. The canal runs for miles and miles up past New Hope into some really lovely and peaceful scenery. Bike, walk, hike - but don't miss it.

I don't recall there being any bike rentals around. I wasn't really looking for them though. The area isn't that big where you might need a bike to get around. Well my opinion. We walked to see everything.
what does it cost and can I buy tickets in advance
