New Jersey D&R Canal
Delaware and Raritan Canal
Delaware and Raritan Canal is in central Jersey. The canal is no longer function as a canal although it still looked like a river. Along the bank is the trail for people to hike or bicycling. There are also a lot people canoeing in the canal in summer time.
New Jersey D&R Canal
The headquarter of D&R Canal state park is just a couple miles from our home. It is very scenic on the way to Princeton along the canal. There are not too many houses along the road and not much traffic. Driving along the road is like passing through a green tunnel made of trees.

The state park has also preserved some canal related relics such as the sites of canal watcher's houses.
New Jersey D&R Canal Griggstown
Griggstown is just a couple miles south of park headquarter. There is canoe rental service here. Along the canal are several parking sites like this for the visitors to park their cars and begin the hiking.
