The Delaware & Raritan Canal was built across New Jersey during the early nineteenth century to provide a safe and efficient route for moving cargo between New York and Philadelphia. Today, about 70 miles of the canal and its tributaries form a park that is one of the most popular New Jersey spots for canoeing, hiking, jogging, bicycling, horseback riding, and fishing.
For nature lovers and bird watchers, there are about 160 species of birds in this verdant and important wildlife corridor. History buffs will appreciate the picturesque 19th century wooden bridges, bridge tender houses, various locks (or what is left of them), cobblestone spillways, and stone-arched culverts.
