Very serene, level walkways along the canal. Great scenery, always ducks and frogs. Most of the walk is shaded so youre out of the sun. It's very safe with always other walkers.

It's a nice walk; you see the locks and the setting is idyllic. The water is very stagnant--not so beautiful. But, a good diversion for a half hour or so.

A beautiful spot with interesting history! You can take the canal towpath downtown and then out of town past little lagoons, thick woods, canal locks, and interpretive signage. Some wildlife sightings and views of the river and historic architecture. Looking forward to visiting again!

Great place for a short walk or long bike ride. Bring bug spray unless you are staying on the path right in town. It is not well mowed and better safe than sorry when it comes to bugs.

I don't recall there being any bike rentals around. I wasn't really looking for them though. The area isn't that big where you might need a bike to get around. Well my opinion. We walked to see everything.
