If you take the D&R canal path towards, Trenton, get on the other leg that heads towards Frenchtown, NJ. It passes through Lambertville, NJ, which is on the AC route.

NY Route 17 passes through Middletown, which is on the AC route. Heading south from there you will find camping outside Port Jervis, NY. You then cross into NJ and go through the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Very pretty. At the southern end, there is camping at Worthington State Forest. Once you get to Frenchtown, NJ, you can pick up the D&R bike path. It's nicely surfaced and really doesn't slow you down that much. About 10 miles south of Frenchtown the trail passes Bull's Island Recreation Area, which has a nice campground (you will most likey need a reservation if you plan to stay there on a weekend night.) You can take the trail into Stockton (about 4 miles) for groceries. There is also a great wine store there. Rte. 29 from Frenchtown has a wide shoulder until Stockton, where it disappears until Lambertville. The bike path is recommended, at least south of Bull's Island. You probably won't find any camping between Bull's island until a good distance south of Norristown, PA.
