The 70-mile Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park preserves an 1834 Canal and Feeder Canal where you will see a number of beautiful 19th-century grist and linseed oil mills, wooden bridges, historic buildings, and locks. You can also enjoy canoeing, boating and fishing. Each spring the canal is stocked with bass, sunfish, catfish, perch, pickerel and trout. The park offers a variety of nature programs, guided walking, biking or kayak tours and much more. Check the park website program calendar for monthly listings. A paved historic towpath travels along both canals is extremely popular for jogging, cycling and horseback riding and is ADA accessible. The park and towpath runs the entire length of this drive to Frenchtown, and each section has its own charms and historic points of interest.
