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 upper portion of the feeder canal follows the Delaware River through many old towns with historical significance. In Trenton, the U-shaped trail has a gap between Mulberry Street and Southard Street. South of Trenton, a disconnected segment runs between John A. Roebling Memorial Park and Hamilton Marshes.
You can access the Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail from dozens of places along the way. Refer to the map for more details or visit the Canal State Park website
