We had come to Delphi for Baconfest a couple of years ago and took the trolley over to the canal to ride on the restored portion. We loved it. Decided to come back hoping it would be a quiet Labor Day weekend spot. It was. This is a fascinating historic trail where you can see the natural reclamation of several human built environments and the towpath trail (only part of the trail system) has some great interpretive signage. Lots of little byways and looping options.
