Paddlers’ Guide to the Delaware River

A bestseller in its previous editions, Paddlers’ Guide to the Delaware River is an indispensable resource for exploring the Delaware in a kayak, canoe, raft, or tube. The River comes alive as author Gary Letcher charts the way 200 miles from Hancock, New York, to tidewater at Trenton, New Jersey, detailing access, rapids, communities, camping, historic sites, natural features, and other recreation highlights. Some of the people, places, events and controversies that have marked the river from earliest times are visited along the way.

Completely revised, this Fourth Edition offers new and updated information, all-new color maps, and 50 color photographs of and along the river. It’s a must-have for river novices, expert paddlers, and armchair adventurers alike.
