New Hope Lambertville Area Outdoor Adventures
The days are a little shorter but also a little cooler, so it’s time to grab your walking shoes or bicycles, and enjoy the outdoors. From Woolverton Inn, its just a quick walk down to our famous Towpath (Delaware Canal State Park), which runs 25 miles along the Delaware River. There are also many stunning parks within a 20-30 minute drive, including Sourland Mountains, Washington Crossing State Park, Ringing Rocks, Ralph Stover State Park, Peace Valley Park and the Lavender Farm. For a lovely nature experience with curated trails, visit the Bowman’s Wildflower Preserve in New Hope, PA. If you’d rather take a leisurely drive with stops along the way, follow the Covered Bridge Ride and see the 12 remaining covered bridges in Bucks County PA.
The farmland of Hunterdon and Bucks Counties provides fertile soil for our local vineyards, breweries and distilleries. These venues offer stunning landscapes and an ongoing schedule of lively events. Many are deeply connected to the agricultural history.
Alba Vineyards, just north of Frenchtown, dates back to the late 1700’s, and was originally a dairy farm. Their vineyards are the first cultivation of the land, ensuring a rich supply of nutrients for their grape vines.
Unionville Vineyards, close by in Ringoes, NJ, was originally part of the largest peach orchard in the United States. George Washington led his troops over much of this area. They camped on the grounds nearby that now nourish some of their finest vines. Speaking of the first president, Crossing Vineyard is just minutes from the famous Revolutionary War crossing at the Delaware on Christmas day. Learn more about area wineries and breweries at the Hunterdonn 549 Trail website.
