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.
TRAIL CLOSURE (Mile 15): The towpath trail will be closed around-the-clock for the construction of a pedestrian bridge over the Delaware Canal in the area of I-95/I-295, Scudder Falls Bridge, through October 2021. The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission (DRJTBC) will be demolishing the existing bridge over the canal and/or conducting work on the new bridge overhead during these closures. For additional information please visit the DRJTBC website at www.drjtbc.org/project/scudder-falls or you can contact the park office at 610-982-5560.
