A popular trail in Bucks County recently saw a sinkhole form where walkers, runners, and bikers regularly enjoy the great outdoors.

The sinkhole formed on a part of the Delaware Canal Towpath in the area of Uhlerstown (Mile Post 39.4). The towpath is currently closed at the Farley Wastegate, just south of the town.

“The purpose of this closure is for PUBLIC SAFETY,” the Delaware Canal State Park said online. “Trail users should turn around at the closure and NOT attempt to get by it.”

Stretching from Bristol to the area of Easton in Northampton County, the towpath has been a popular place for resident of and visitors to the area who want to enjoy the wonders of nature in the area. With much of the path structured alongside the Delaware River, it also gives travelers a glimpse of one of Pennsylvania’s most famous bodies of water.

No updates on the closure or the fixing of the sinkhole have been made as of yet.
