Listed below are several of the canal tour's highlighted "on-the-ground" site

  • Canal Lock #9 and Locktender's House, Newark
  • Guard Lock 16 near Black Hand Gorge
  • Triple Locks at Dresden
  • Locks 15 &16 Tuscarawas (Upper Trenton)
  • Roscoe Village Locks 26 & 27
  • Triple Walhonding Locks
  • Canal boat ride on the Monticello III

In addition, we will view a number of additional locks, historic buildings and
towns, and other significant and interesting locales from the bus. In many places,
the canal sites have been supplanted by roads and highways such as Ohio route  16  
and U.S. route 36, as well as county and township roads and village streets.

Fresh  boxed lunches, snacks and bottled water will be provided for our guests.

Please wear comfortable shoes and clothing. For the most part, the sites we'll visit are
cleared and accessible, although several of the sites could be muddy, with twigs and
small branches on the nearby ground. By their nature, some of the sites are hilly, wet
or muddy and not handicap accessible.
