The D&L Trail will be closed in the area of Phillips Mill (Solebury Twp) due to the scheduled bridge replacement project. Thru-travelers may exit the towpath at Lower Limeport bridge (by Hal H. Clark Park) and re-enter via the Malcolm Crooks bridge in Canal Park, Solebury Twp (and vice versa). This closure is for public safety due to heavy machinery and vehicles that will be accessing the bridge via the towpath.
Please call Delaware Canal State Park office at 610-982-5560 if you have any questions.
An additional option is to use the Delaware & Raritan Trail on the NJ side of the Delaware River to bypass this section. The Centre Bridge to Stockton is the closest to the north and New Hope to Lamberville is the closest to the south.
This D&L Trail section passes the town of Center Bridge between Virginia Forrest Recreation Area and New Hope. Stop in New Hope to grab a bite to eat, enjoy a drink or explore the shops and history. 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.
