Notice to Visitors

Mule-drawn canal boat rides on the Josiah White II are running again! Construction on the Lehigh Canal is complete and we invite you to come celebrate with us during Canal Appreciation Month.

There is so much to do and see at the National Canal Museum and Hugh Moore Park.

Bike & Boat Rentals

National Canal Museum - Bike & Boat Rentals

Due to unforeseen construction by the City of Easton,
the Lehigh Canal will be drained until further notice.
Therefore canoes & paddleboats will not be rented.
Bikes are still available for rental as well as several other activities.  Click here for details.


Paddle or Pedal Along a Historic Canal!

There are more than two miles of the placid, fully restored Lehigh Canal in Hugh Moore Park, located alongside the D&L Trail. Explore the canal and D&L Trail on a paddleboat, canoe, or bike available for rent next to the dock of the Josiah White II canal boat.
