“Beautiful Views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Beautiful during autumn time, winter, spring and summer, this is a very scenic and beautiful canal to take photographs of, walk around, picnic.

A must see if in the area for sure! Can be a very romantic spot!

“Wonderful Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

I come here a lot with my family and my dog. This canal is great. There is so much wildlife! I've seen beavers, turtles, deer, blue herons, a raccoon and many different kinds of birds. It is a great place to bird watch or to walk, ride a bike, or jog. I love it down here and I go at least once a week in the summer.

“Not a scenic walk or bike”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Our family walked along the canal briefly last week. The canal needs to be dredged or cleaned. It is not a scenic walk, plus the entire downtown area of New Hope was crowded and loud (apparently it is a favorite of motorcycle gangs). Better walks in Washington's Crossing State Park for sure.

“Love to bike the canal tow path!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 March 2014

In every season the NJ side of the canal tow path is wonderful for walking or bike riding. We bike ride as much as possible. It is flat so the bike ride is very easy. The views are different every day. Go and enjoy. Fall is my favorite time there.

“Shh! I'm hunting wabbits.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

Nice place to walk and see rabbits and chipmunks.Water gets very green in the summer. Colonial Americans used these canals as highways.
