This easy hike takes you to Bowman's Tower, through Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve, and then ends at historic soldier graves from 1776 at Washington Crossing State Park. It's a great hike with tons to see in a short distance.

If you have GPS device (I use this one by Garmin and I love it) for your hike, load the GPX file below into your device to navigate the hike. For help on loading the GPX file, read this article on converting and transferring to a Garmin GPS.
Also, don't rely on electronics as your sole means of navigation. There's a basic printable PDF map below, and I strongly picking up a good topo map too.
Once you’re in Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve, you have some options. Below is the route I recommend, but you can really choose your own if there’s something specific that you want to see. Just make sure you end up at the exit on the map below to continue the hike. The trails are all pretty well marked and the area is small, so it’s hard to get lost on this hike.
A quick note. These directions are meant as a guide for the hike, and not a definitive source. Conditions change, and the information here can be different based on time of day, weather, season, etc. There can be small side trails that you might see but I missed. I have made every effort to include all the information you need to complete the hike successfully. I recommend using this guide in conjunction with a map, GPX file, common sense, and call to the ranger station or park office. If you do the hike and notice something has changed, please contact me and I will update the guide.
