17 mile walk from Trenton to Lambertville, NJ
This route shadows, in reverse order, the movement of George Washington's troops in December 1776. We will pass the Old Barracks in Trenton, where the Hessian troops that Washington defeated in the critical Battle of Trenton were posted. We will venture along the Delaware Canal through Morrisville and Yardley before reaching Washington Crossing, where we will have the opportunity to cross the Delaware, tour historic buildings and take a mid-walk break. Bowman Hill is believed by some to be the location of the lookout point Washington used to prepare for safe crossing. The tower atop Bowman Hill offers an amazing view for about 15 miles around, particularly at this time of year. The New Hope Ivyland Railroad is along the way and offers fall foliage tours of the area on antique trains. We finish in New Hope and Lambertville, with their many galleries, shops and eateries. A great area for comfy overnight lodging in preparation for the next day's walk!
