The course is out-and back along the historic Delaware Canal State Park towpath trail from Yardley north through New Hope Pennsylvania, returning to Yardley.
Built in 1832, the tow path is narrow in some sections, requiring single file travel. The towpath has several mule bridge underpasses with low clearance. There are 24 bridge underpasses along the course, for a total of 48 underpassings. Tall people will feel the need to duck.
