    Ride south (downstream). If you have the time and ability you can ride the trail all the way down to Lambertville. The trail runs between the river and Rt. 29. I recommend going as far as Bull's Island State park and picnic there or cross the pedistrian bridge into PA for lunch. The trail is cinders (not paved) and the road bed gets bumpier as you near Lamberville.

    Located in what appears to be a large garage, this place offers a large seletion of gluten free and vegan selections. Check the web site for daily additions to the regular menu. They have a patio out front for outside dining when the weather is nice.

    Check the website for evenings that they are open for dinner.

    Be sure to check out the eclectic gift shop around the back of the building!

    Favorite Dish: I always enjoy the soups here.

    A romantic restaurant in downtown Frenchtown. On the expensive side but worth it for those special occasions. Zagut rated. It's close to the popular bike trail but do not attempt to enter wearing your biking ensemble!

    Favorite Dish: I order one of the specials.

    Frenchtown makes a good start for a ride on the Rail trail which runs along the river. The bed is level but it is not paved(packed cinders). I have been on this trail many times using a road bike with wider tires with no problem. Road bikers may want to ride on Route 29 and go south of town. This is a level road with wide shoulders. If you do not have your own bike with you, good rentals are available at the Cycle Corner bike shop in town. Most of the ride will be in the shade with a view of the Delaware River. Good family ride.

    Equipment: Bring water, snacks and a spare tube. There are no services until Bull's Island Park and then again in the town of Stockton.
