Cyclists of all ages and skill levels will enjoy the D&R Canal Towpath Ride. The path is surfaced with compacted grit, providing a smooth enjoyable ride. You’ll travel alongside the beautiful Delaware River past historic lockkeeper houses, stone arched culverts and an range of wildlife. Along the way, you can visit the quaint “river towns” of Frenchtown, Stockton and Lambertville. Stop for a bite to eat, visit interesting shops, or just chat with the locals.

Where to start your ride: There are many access points along the towpath. Starting in Frenchtown, you leave your car in the park and ride lot at Front & Bridge Streets. There are also several parking areas as you travel along Route 29 from Frenchtown to Lambertville.
