Join us for this first of five walks that will travel the entire length of the Delaware Canal. Our journey will begin at the northern end in Easton - where Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company boats entered the Delaware Canal on their journey south. See the fish ladder and imagine the endurance and determination of the shad that make their way through the many chambers of the ladder. Tour Groundhog Lock with its unique power house. Spy the delicate Roebling Bridge in Riegelsville. Pass Durham - historic home to the famous furnace, limestone cave, and colonial-era boats. The walk begins at 9:00 am sharp and will be one-way with a shuttle ride back to our beginning point. We'll meet at The Forks of the Delaware Recreation Area, 210 South Delaware Drive (Route 611), Easton, PA 18042, then hike 13 miles south to the Indian Rock Inn, 2206 River Road (Route 32) Upper Black Eddy, PA 18972. Please begin water and lunch. Our lunch break is planned for the Theodore Roosevelt Recreation Area in Raubsville. Having a rain jacket and hat is always a good idea, plus a warmer layer if the air is brisk. Please register for the hike - a good head count is needed for the car pool return at end of walk.
