Great little walking trail. It’s well kept and has seating right on the river. Also, has several informational Placards telling the history of the canal.

Great nature walk! plenty of things to see with the kids!

Nice trail at an historic site. Its great to see the positive changes happening here. Trail itself is realtively flat, grass covered, and well maintained. Should be easy for just about any skill level. A portion of the trail leads to the river. Interpretive signage and large parking area. I will return.

A great trail for beginners. Did about 2.1 miles on this mostly flat and well maintained trail. Quite the bird chorus throughout the entire duration of the trail...many variety to see. A bit of history with the canal can be reviewed before starting the trail. If you go left of the Lock house, the trail is a well maintained grass trail that eventually stops with a Private Property sign that is posted.(.5 miles in) If you head back you will have about a mile in and then can take the river trail which is very nice. There are several benches along the way and the path eventually goes from grass to a dirt trail covered trail with pine needles. It looks around and takes you back to the starting point.(you can branch off this loop onto what appears to be a short animal type path) Constant sound of water flowing, bird chorus, and the smell of wild flowers made this an enjoyable, short hike. w Wildlife seen: Large variety of birds, ground hogs, and a beaver. Variety of tracks near the river including a bobcat. Only downfall is the sound of traffic from State Route 6 but no big deal. Enjoyable trail and great for bigginers/kids.
