About the Delaware River Water Trail Web Site Maps

The maps are excellent trip planning aids that indicate public access points, the local road network, points of interest, recreational activities and riverside facilities such as restrooms, parking, and picnic areas.

The maps are not intended to be used for navigating the river by watercraft. River Conditions vary depending on weather conditions. Dry weather can expose rocks and other obstacles. Wet weather can cause rapid increases in river levels. You can check river conditions with canoe liveries or outfitters, or the Upper Delaware River Hotline before setting out.

The Delaware River Recreation Maps

These water proof maps are an excellent resource that provide an overview of a particular reach of river. Noted are areas of caution, dams, access locations, ICF/AWA designated stream flow characteristics, channel locations and depths, stream mileages and reference points.
