Delaware Canal Towpath Closures/Avoidances Due to TD Ida
September 7, 2021
If you plan to use the towpath be sure to use extreme caution due to damages sustained from Hurricane Ida. It is highly advised that visitors avoid the section of towpath between Easton (MP 58.89) and Point Pleasant, Lock 14 (MP 32.3). There are downed trees and debris along the entire length of the towpath. The towpath is closed in the area of Upper Black Eddy (MP 43) due to a bank collapse and washout to the river. Areas of SR 611 and River Road (RT 32) are washed out leaving areas inaccessible. The Day Use Recreation Areas at Theodore Roosevelt (MP 53.1) will remain closed due to ongoing cleanup efforts. Heed all signs for road and towpath closures. Traveling by car near the park may be difficult to navigate.
If you plan to go to Ralph Stover State Park this weekend, use caution on trails. There will be limited parking due to parking lot washouts.
