Last weekend the rain on Saturday caused us to cancel our biking plans on the Canal Path. We just weren’t in the mood for a sloppy ride that day. Instead we took a leisurely stroll through the neighborhoods of Lambertville; admiring all the beautiful homes. We even stumbled upon a neat little nature trail that winded up a ridge where we could look down on the town and the houses below. It starts on York Street to Alexander Ave and aptly named Lambertville Nature Trail (Amazingly it appears on Google Maps!) With all of the leaves coming into full autumn colors – lots of golden leaves — it was beautiful. (For those visiting the area, Lambertivlle NJ is a town that sits across the Delaware river from New Hope. There are quaint little coffee shops, artist studios, great restaurants, a bike path passing through the town ,(D&R Canal), and wonderful antique stores – and now I have learned of a great nature trail. Definitely worth making the trip across the bridge for this town has its own unique style.
We did another nice walk on Sunday at a place I grew up visiting – Tyler State Park in Newtown. There is a very nice loop trail perfect for a Sunday walk – a bridge across the Neshaminy Creek on 332 makes it happen. Upon taking the Tyler Drive Trail you can now cross the creek and connect with the Mill Dairy Trail. You wouldn’t know this from looking at the park map. What is nice is the fact it is all paved – perfect for a day after a heavy rain where you want a good nature trail but on pavement.
Hopefully this upcoming weekend brings nice weather for a nice bike ride!
