The lady at lock 7 was very helpful. Afterwards watched a huge tanker slowly go through the canal while cyclists passed by. Canal system has lots of history.

Like to walk, great paved walkways, shared with bicycles, the canal runs from Port Weller on Lake Ontario, south to Port Colborne on Lake Erie. There are parking spots along the canal so you can , stop and tour different areas.

Bring your SUP, kayak, canoe or floaty! A great spot where you don't have to worry about motor boats. The canal also has a lane marked for swimmers. Just watch some of the old fibreglass docs that you don't get a sliver. A great spot...More

We meandered along the canal (in our car) checking out the different locks along the water. It really is very cool. A great place to visit and a nice little drive with the family.
