Washington Crossing State Park is an expansive natural area that sits along the Delaware River and is absolutely gorgeous. The park has miles of hiking trails , most which are easy enough for the littlest family members to traverse safely. The trails offer an up-and-close look at the woodland greenery and inhabitants. In addition to hiking trails there are also several miles for biking and horseback riding as well. The trails are well marked but because of the density of the park, visitors should stick to marked paths and be aware of their surroundings when venturing into the woods.
In addition to the beautiful trails, the park offers camping, an open air theater, picnic areas, playgrounds, an observatory and a nature center. Visitors also have the opportunity to check out the visitor's center museum and on-site historical houses - the Ferry House and the Nelson House. My children love to cross the pedestrian bridge which runs over Route 29 and walk along the Delaware River to check out the ducks, fishermen and canoes on the water. There's so much to see and do, you'll want to be sure to pack a lunch (or tent!) and spend the day exploring all the park has to offer.
