Our Canal Ride is a great backroad route with the
canal along your side for a long portion of the trip. This ride does use some narrow
roads, so please drive with caution. We're sure you'll use this ride again and
again. There are many variations you can do once you leave the canal. It leaves you close
to some great country riding. This is a good cool trip on a hot summer day, plenty
of trees and cool breeze blowing off of the canal.
