The Delaware and Raritan Canal Trail

The Delaware and Raritan Canal Trail Overview

Delaware and Raritan Canal Trail

The Delaware and Raritan Canal Trail is a 70 mile from Frenchtown NJ to New Brunswick, NJ. The canal is composed of two sections, the main canal which runs from New Brunswick to Trenton and the Feeder Canal which runs along the Delaware River From Trenton to Frenchtown.

The canal is part of the National Recreation Trail System.

The D&R Canal system was built in the early 19th Century to provide for transporting freight between Philadelphia and New York. Freight was carried using a team of mules or steam tugboats.

Much of this system remains today with many historical buildings, bridges and canal lock infrastructure for visitors to experience. Towns and villages along the canal include Frenchtown, Stockton, Lambertville, Kingston, Griggstown, Blackwells Mills and New Brunswick.
