Kayak Access

blank dot

Primitive launch, non-motorized boats only. River Mile 141.8. Access is from the New Jersey side of the Delaware. Parking for up to 100 vehicles is available off River Road upstream of the bridge. A popular paddling route is to go north 5.3 miles to Firemen’s Eddy, the carry the boat to the Delaware and paddle downstream to Washington Crossing. Restrooms are available.

In addition to being near the Washington Crossing Bridge, the site is adjacent to the Delaware and Raritan Feeder Canal, built in 1834. Today the D&R Canal Trail is a 69-mile-long trail that follows two canal systems in New Jersey: the Main Canal from New Brunswick to Trenton, and the Feeder Canal from Trenton to Frenchtown. It is part of the East Coast Greenway, a network of trails that spans from Maine to Florida.

The former Belvidere Delaware Railroad is next to the canal (the towpath was on the inland side, the trail is the rail bed) and was opened in 1850. Passenger service was finished in 1960, and freight service ended in 1979.
