Trail Section: Theodore Roosevelt Recreation Area – Durham Aqueduct

Status: Obstruction within trail section, see description

Distance: 3.9

9/23/2021 Update: If you plan to use the Delaware Canal region of the D&L Trail be sure to use extreme caution. It is highly advised that visitors avoid the section of the towpath between Easton (MP 58.89) and Point Pleasant, Lock 14 (MP32.3). There are downed trees and debris along the entire length of the towpath. The towpath is closed in the area of Upper Black Eddy (MP 43) due to a bank collapse and washout to the river. Areas of SR 611 and River Road (RT 32) are washed out leaving areas inaccessible. The Day Use Recreation Areas at Theodore Roosevelt (MP 53.1) will remain closed due to ongoing cleanup efforts. Heed all signs for road and towpath closures. Traveling by car near the park may be difficult to navigate. Check back for status updates.

This D&L Trail section allows users to travel between Northampton County and Bucks County and through the town of Riegelsville. 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.
