Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational RiverThe Delaware & Hudson Canal, one of the nation's first large-scale private enterprises, transported millions of tons of anthracite (hard coal) from northeastern Pennsylvania to markets in New York. Gravity railroads took the coal over Moosic Mountain from Carbondale to Honesdale, and later from Pittston to Hawley. The 108-mile canal carried the coal through 108 locks along and across the Lackawaxen, Delaware, and Neversink rivers and Rondout Creek to the Hudson River. Competition from railroads closed the D&H Canal system in 1898, after 70 years of operation.
