“infomative, good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

Just came back from the 3 hour cruise. The narrator, Steve, spoke for two hours providing interesting information along the entire length of the canal. I never found it to be uninteresting.
Parking in Onset was right at the boat dock, a beautiful day and a wonderful cruise.I don't know why I've waited so long to go.

“Always a great take”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

Nice fun place, always a nice walk. Be care of bikers, some think they have the right of way but most are good. Great seeing the boats go by. Always fun to stop by for a look.

“Tranquil is the name”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2014

This place reminds me of lazy days when the sun is shining and the breeze cools me down. It is a great place to unwind and sit by the canal. It is a beautiful walking/biking/running stretch where lots of people bring their dogs too. There are umpteen benches to sit down and watch the ships go by. It is so peaceful and well maintained.

“Bike riding with grandkids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

We love bringing our grandkids on the bike trails. The Cape side usually has less traffic on the path if you are going for your first time. We taught the kids to say "on your left" before passing walkers and one of our granddaughters was a riot to hear. We have brought our sailboat through the canal many times and once we caught the tide wrong going south... walkers were passing us!! If you are lucky you might see the lowering and raising of the railroad trestle bridge with a train passing over. Definitely a good day trip with children. The paths are relatively flat for easy peddling and there are restrooms on each end of the canal.
