Delaware & Lehigh - "Member's Choice Walk" on Delaware Canal

A lively stretch of the Delaware Canal from Centre Bridge to New Hope will be explored during a “Member’s Choice Walk” on Sunday, July 19. The 9.5 mile round trip hike, sponsored by the Friends of the Delaware Canal, will begin at 10 a.m. at the Virginia Forrest Recreation Area located off River Road, approximately 1-1/4 miles north of Centre Bridge.

Joan Aichele will lead the first “Member’s Choice Walk,” an event designed to let members of the Friends of the Delaware Canal showcase their favorite section of the waterway. Joan is an experienced Canal walker and has acquired her talents as a group leader through her participation in the Delaware Valley chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club. She will explain why she likes the Centre Bridge to New Hope section best and share stories about the sights along the way. Stopping for lunch at Dilly’s Corner is an option.

The Member’s Choice Walk is free, and the public is welcome. For more information, call 215-862-2021, e-mail [email protected] or visit
