TOWPATH CLOSURE (MILE 26)- Just South of the Philips Mill Bridge the towpath is CLOSED for storm damage including wires across the towpath. The purpose of this closure is for PUBLIC SAFETY and will be in effect until the crossing can be made safe. Trail users should turn around at the closure and NOT attempt to get by it. The Delaware Canal State Park is working with utility companies to address the situation as quickly as possible.
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.
