D&R Canal Towpath Bike Hike

Scouts, Leaders, and Parents:

Here are the details for the trip this Saturday. We will be biking down the D&R Canal Towpath on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River. The trip is roughly 28 miles.

We will be meeting at St. John's at 7:00am, loading bikes and gear, and departing by 7:30am.

We will travel in two vehicles along with the bikes. We will travel from Birdsboro to Frenchtown, NJ. The Scouts and Leaders will travel south along the towpath toward Trenton.

We will stop around Lambertville (mile marker 16.0) for lunch.

We will finish the rest of the bike hike and will head home mid-afternoon. We will contact families along the way to let them know when we will arrive back at the church.
