Delaware & Hudson Canal

Work commenced on the Delaware & Hudson Canal in July 1825 and was completed in 1828. This 108-mile waterway carried coal between Honesdale and the Hudson River. Huge coal piles were part of the scenery in Honesdale, where the coal hauled by the Delaware and Hudson gravity railroad was transferred to the Delaware and Hudson (D&H) Canal Company boats. Stroll, run, or bike along the D&H Canal's towpath. Originally a path for mules pulling canal boats, many sections of towpath have been transformed into unique recreational trails.
