Lower Delaware National Wild and Scenic River

Size: 67 miles

Overview: Having the status of largest free-flowing river in the United States, the Delaware River cuts through a variety of terrains from forests and farmlands to small villages and more densely populated areas. Because of the importance of the river to both the history and the landscape of the nation, key segments of the lower Delaware River were formed into this unit of the National Park System in 2000. Visitors can choose to explore the river in a kayak, boat, or canoe, or hike or bike along the banks. Be sure to take time to visit the historic towns that grew up along the river, and stay overnight in one of the area’s many inns, hostels, cabins, or campgrounds.
