First Day Hike

***Program Location: Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve (lower parking lot), 1635 River Road (Rt. 32), New Hope, PA***

***Registration NOT required***

This year, 2,949 people hiked over 7,755 miles on First Day Hikes held in state parks across Pennsylvania!  We're hoping to get even more people out on the first day of 2020, and you can help us with that! Get those resolutions rolling and welcome the New Year with an afternoon stroll on the Delaware Canal Towpath.    

Join state park naturalists for a 4 mile hike on easy, level terrain, starting in the lower parking lot of Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve, River Rd. (PA-32), and heading 2 miles north on the Delaware Canal towpath toward New Hope and back. All ages and abilities are welcome. Leashed, friendly dogs welcome. Hike at your own pace and turn back when you wish (or stay in New Hope for a bite to eat!).  We hope to see you there!

It was very interesting. The 2 park employees were very knowledgeable and personable.
