Discovering the Historic and Natural Resources of the Delaware River Valley

The Delaware River Heritage Trail will be a 60-mile multi-use loop highlighting the cultural and natural resources along the upper portion of the scenic Delaware River estuary. The completed trail will link 24 communities, from Trenton to Palmyra on the New Jersey side and from Morrisville to Philadelphia’s Tacony neighborhood in Pennsylvania. The Delaware River Greenway Partnership and a bi-state advisory committee of government and nonprofit representatives coordinated initial planning for the trail; DRGP is now working on Heritage Trail interpretation, which includes trail signage and this website. Trail construction will be done by county and municipal government agencies. In 2010, Burlington County will begin work on the Bordentown to Burlington City segment.
