The D&H Towpath Trail - Minisink Ford, NY

Come discover a path to the past! Experience natural beauty and local history while you explore along the banks of the Delaware River. 

Approximately one-third of a mile long, the Towpath Trail follows the path of the Delaware & Hudson Canal.

#1 Slackwater Dam
#2 Guard Lock
#3 Slackwater Towpath
#4 The Icebreakers
#5 Wurtz and Lord Foundation Stone
#6 Canal Remnants

Please stay on the path. The Towpath Trail occupies a narrow corridor of public land. Please respect our neighbors’ privacy and stay out of restricted areas.
