Need to Know

Parking at red lock fills fast

Description

To get here, park at Red Lock Trailhead and run on the towpath north. There are two entrances and the trail can be done at either direction.

You'll run up moderate inclines on the same path carriages used to take to get their farm goods to the towpath. Certain sections are very narrow and difficult in the mud, snow, or ice. The trail borders deep and beautiful ravines with a side trail to an overlook.

The southern end is partially paved an open to bikes only for a shortcut to the bike trail. Most of the trail is closed to bikes.

Flora & Fauna

Deer, birds, screech owls along the towpath

Typical trail section for this hike. Flat, packed, wide dirt lanes. More of a "walk in the woods" than a hike.
