The beginning of the D&R (Delaware and Raritan) Canal at Lock 1 in Bordentown can be found near the convergence of Crosswicks Creek and the Delaware River. What was once a bustling hub of commerce at the start of the canal along the Delaware River and Crosswicks Creek is now a quiet place to explore stands of wild rice and a chorus of bird songs.

A 3.5-mile-long trail is accessible from the 295 Scenic Overlook, the pedestrian bridge next to the NJ Light Rail in Bordentown City or a parking area located along Route 129 in Trenton. A network of trails within Abbott Marshlands are maintained by local government and nonprofit agencies.
