We came to walk and the views are great! The canal trail is flat and easy with bikes or strollers. The beginning has a nice park, bathrooms and tables to sit at. We enjoyed seeing the water and going off the trail a little.

Located at the Headgates of the Augusta Canal System, this visitor center is a fun way to get an overview of all the activities the system has to offer. You can also learn about the history of the area.

This is in a scenic area with water, history, trails, and a event center. The casual observer will enjoy a short walk and those with more time and explore more of the area. Nice side trip on a long journey.
