***SECTION OF TOWPATH CLOSED***Due to the canal failure at the Tinicum Aqueduct, a portion of the towpath will be closed until emergency repairs and stabilization work can be completed. After further inspection by engineering staff it was determined that a trail closure would be necessary for public safety. The towpath will be closed until further notice from the parking lot south of the Golden Pheasant (across from Marshal Island) to the south side of the Tinicum Aqueduct. The trail closure can be bypassed by using River Road for a short distance (approximately ½ mile) or by crossing over the Frenchtown bridge or Lumberville pedestrian bridge and using the trail along the D&R Canal State Park in New Jersey.
***CANAL DRAWDOWN NOTICE*** Beginning September 26, 2016, Delaware Canal State Park will begin a drawdown of water levels in the canal in order to conduct several repair and preventative maintenance projects. For more information, please check the red Advisories section of the Delaware Canal State Park website.
This section is part of over 50 miles of the D&L Trail designated as National Recreation Trail within Delaware Canal State Park from Easton to Bristol near Philadelphia. For more information specific to the D&L Trail along the Delaware Canal please refer to the Delaware Canal State Park and Friends of the Delaware Canal websites.
