the Delaware River 200 miles from Hancock, New York to
Trenton, New Jersey!
On any summer day many thousands of canoeists, kayakers and other boaters can be found plunging through the rapids or lazing along the eddies of the beautiful Delaware River. Some segments of the river offer a near-wilderness experience, yet are with easy reach of the cities and suburbs of the Mid-Atlantic region. The water is cool and clean, the scenery magnificent, and the rapids challenging. By all accounts, the Delaware is among the most popular rivers for recreational boating in the United States.
A best-seller in its first editions (formerly Canoeing the Delaware River), this revision by author Gary Letcher is the definitive guidebook to paddling the Delaware River. All-new and updated for novices, experts, and armchair adventurers alike:
- Mile-by-mile log of access, rapids, natural features, historic sites and other landmarks;
- All new maps, naming virtually all rapids, eddies, and river features, with diagrams showing the way through the most severe white-water;
- Highlights of the people, events, natural history, communities and controversies that have marked the Delaware from earliest times to the present day -- Tom Quick, the infamous "avenger of the Delaware"; the mysterious migration of eels; the battle over Tocks Island Dam.
- Appendixes of outfitters and campgrounds, river conditions and safety, trip checklist, important contacts, and more.
