A Long Haul that is one-size-fits-all.

Choose the distance that suits your ability, with the numerous river crossings available:

The new pedestrian crossing at Scudder Falls in Yardley will be available to us as well.

Join us before the walk for some food, music and gritty atmosphere, all now part of Long Haul tradition.

Can you walk 100km in one day?
Our longest FreeWalk ever (62.1mi)

Travel a scenic and pedestrian-friendly journey along the entire length of the historic Delaware Canal and visit all of the charming riverside towns of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Covered bridges, colonial history, photogenic landscapes, local food, and so much mileage you can't handle. Or can you?
