D&R Canal Biking: Washington Crossing to Trenton - 7/15/12

We only had one day open this weekend, and the forecast was for scattered thunderstorms all day. So to make it easy we grabbed the bikes and headed to Washington Crossing again.

Overall, this was a mostly a decent ride but not our fave part of the towpath, mainly due to crossing over in Trenton.

Route:View in Google Maps – From Washington Crossing in NJ take the towpath south to Trenton, over the Calhoun Bridge to PA, north from Morrisville, PA to Taylorsville, PA and over the bridge back to Washington Crossing in NJ.

Miles: 16.7

I was looking at your blue heron pictures thinking "Oh, they saw two blue herons, too!" only to read you saw FIVE?!?!?!?  I thought it was just me thinking I had seen more great blue herons this year than I have in my entire life but apparently there are a lot of them around this year.

We were thinking it was just this area was really favorable for blue herons or something, they were mentioned in one of the interpretive plaques... then I read your latest hike and was like oh maybe they are just really abundant this year. It was so cool to watch them move their legs and neck ever...so....slowly... and then SNAP get a tasty something.

We may have to start hauling our good camera on our bikes next time... it was killing me not to get a good shot!
