Tomorrow, an event in New Hope will recognize the popular towpath as the Trail of the Year in Pennsylvania, a state known for its beautiful hiking trails.
The ceremony will be held at the historic Locktender’s House, located at 145 South Main Street in New Hope, from 11 AM to 12 noon. Senator Steve Santarsiero will be present at the event, with Michael Ginder, Executive Director of the Friends of the Delaware Canal, giving opening comments on the momentous occasion.
Members of Department of Conservation and Natural Resources will officially recognize the Delaware Canal State Park Towpath as the state’s best trail of the year. Enjoyed by Bucks County residents from every township and borough, the trail runs for over 60 miles through Bristol to Easton.
Representative Wendi Thomas, Secretary Cindy Adams Dunn of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and Brian Heath, the Park Manager of Delaware Canal State Park, will also be in attendance.
In an area known for its natural beauty, it is no wonder that the local towpath is being recognized as the best that Pennsylvania has to offer.
