Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River

Superintendent Name: 
Dave Forney
The Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River stretches along approximately 73 miles of the Delaware River from Hancock, NY to Sparrowbush, NY. Most of the land in this unit of the National Park Service is privately owned. Rolling hills, riverfront villages, and bald eagles perched on trees form a vibrant backdrop as the Delaware River meanders gracefully through the rural countryside. Within the park are the remains of the Delaware and Hudson Canal; which operated from 1828 to 1898 carrying anthracite coal and other regional products to the Hudson River where the products were shipped to various markets including New York City. The local population enjoys the riverâ
