Bicycling along the Delaware River

There are two great bicycling paths that run parallel to the river on both the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Shore lines. Both are old mule paths once used to pull cargo barges through the canals. Combined, the two trails give you 70 miles of the best-maintained bike trails in the area.

Along the way you will find quaint restaurants to eat in, numerous fishing opportunities and some of the best bird watching in the region. And for the photography enthusiast, beautiful small towns, an abundance of wildlife and the picturesque river shots are endless.
