Long description

This walk features crossing the Delaware River via the Roebling Aqueduct (Bridge) from PA to NY and back. The 1847 bridge, designed by and built under the supervision of John A. Roebling (future engineer of the Brooklyn Bridge), is the oldest suspension bridge in the US and originally served as an aqueduct to transport canal boats over the Delaware River. The bridge has been recently fully restored including numerous historical signs showing its use as an Aqueduct. The walk also passes the Zane Grey Museum (free in season).
