Very easy walk to see two old locks used on the canal. Can walk to the end to the Ogeechee River.

This is a nice little out and back trail with plenty of shade from the trees, pretty scenery, and historical remnants of the barge locks. There are several interpretive signs, and benches to sit and enjoy the views of the waterways. The main trail is short but taking the side trails made for a good trail run.

The trails are pretty good. Lot more to see, if you hike all the trails, not just the main 1.5 mile one. Definitely go during low tide. The rivers in the area can rise more than 6 feet at high tide.

very nice trails, there's a donation box there as well $3 per adult. I don't think its stroller friendly. doesn't take long to go through the whole thing

Beautiful trail and there's actually about 4 miles of trails if you want to keep going instead of just the out and back.

It is a nice walking trail, but a little rough for strollers. I agree that the best time to go is low tide. We could not go on a portion of the path because of the tide.

Great little 2.5 mile hike on this nature trail along the old Ogeechee canal. If the gate is close, there is a drop box for you to pay your fee ($3 - $5). During heavy rains, water level could be up making this a little muddy at some points and slippery on the boardwalks. Could even kayak in from the river and go through the locks (I will be doing this next time). Overall 4 stars for this hidden gem.
