The Delaware River Heritage Trail
Delaware River Greenway Partnership (DRGP) is a non-profit organization founded in 1998 that works to bring individuals, communities, businesses, recreational users and all levels of government together to promote and protect a continuous corridor of natural and cultural resources along the Delaware River and its tributaries. The Delaware River Heritage Trail is envisioned as a 60-mile-long loop highlighting the cultural and natural resources along the upper portion of the scenic Delaware River estuary. The trail will link 24 communities, from Trenton to Palmyra on the New Jersey side and from Morrisville to Philadelphia’s Tacony neighborhood in Pennsylvania. The trail is a component of The Circuit, a 750-mile network of biking and pedestrian trails in the greater Philadelphia region. The Delaware River Greenway Partnership and a bi-state advisory committee of government and nonprofit representatives coordinated initial planning for the trail. DRGP focuses on Heritage Trail interpretation, which includes trail signage and this website.
