Join both state park naturalists & the FODC (Friends of the Delaware Canal) for an all day adventure!  The day will begin with a leisurely, guided bicycle ride south along the towpath to Locks 15/16 in Smithtown. After a short break at the turn-around point, we will ride back to Tinicum Park, a 7-mile round-trip.  There we will have a bring-your-own lunch in the covered picnic pavilion.

After lunch, we will take to the water for a 3-mile paddle to Uhlerstown and back. At the "best preserved hamlet in America," we will pass under the only remaining covered bridge over the canal and into Lock 18. Susan Taylor will share some of the town's tales.  

Participants must bring their own bicycles & helmets.  Kayaks, paddles & life vests will be provided by the park.
