Canal and River Walk – A Lambertville-New Hope Winter Festival Event
Join the Friends of the Delaware Canal and the Delaware & Raritan Canal Watch for a guided history and nature tour along both of our neighboring towpaths. This popular event is just one of the many activities held during the annual Lambertville-New Hope Winter Festival. https://www.winterfestival.net/
The first stop on this two-mile walk will be the D&R Feeder Canal lift and outlet locks to learn how canal boats once crossed the Delaware River via a cable ferry. We’ll then follow the path of the mule teams of old as we hike through Lambertville and cross the river bridge into New Hope.
Heading west, the Delaware Canal towpath will soon be found. We’ll trek southward through town to Lock 11 and the Locktender’s House. Hot chocolate with marshmallows and other goodies will be waiting inside.
For those who want to walk and see a bit more, we’ll venture a short distance south to the toll collector’s house, the canal inlet, and the spectacular vistas of the River and the wingdam.
The Winter Walk will be held weather and conditions permitting.
