Delaware River to Trenton, NJ

Delaware River to Trenton, NJ

The Delaware River is navigable 30 miles upriver from Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia to Trenton, the capital of New Jersey. Hospitable ports of call can be found at Burlington (about 7 miles beyond Dredge Harbor) and Bordentown (8 miles farther up and 4 miles short of Trenton) for shoal-draft boats. Bordentown marks the end of the old Delaware and Raritan Canal, which provided an inland passage to the Raritan River and New York Bay until 1932. The speed and power of the railroad inevitably overtook the slower pace of the canal era. This is now a state park with over 70 miles of multiuse paths along an historic canal.
