This is a very beautiful place to walk. The trails are well marked and easy to follow. We walked when there was still snow on the ground in some places and the water still had some ice on it too. And if you are interested in camping there campsites are very nice. Or you could maybe stay in one of there cute little cabins. We looked through the windows and they are complete with kitchen and bathrooms. They have two sets of bunk beds and a double bed from what we could see.

The photos I added were from the other end of the trail that starts on the end of River Rd. that is near the intersection of Rt. 79 and Pigeon Hill Rd. It is a very sharp turn to the right after crossing the steel bridge over the river to get to River Rd. It almost looks like you are going to drive into the driveway of a private residence but the road will pass by the house and continue. You drive the one lane road till you see the sign telling all about the lock and canal. That is the area that you can park in. The beginning of the trail is a little one-lane dirt road and then it turns into a little well worn path.
The road part of the trail is easy to walk, but when it turns into the path it gets a little more challenging in spots. It was clearly marked and very easy to follow.
