I have visited here many times. The views of the Savannah River and the Augusta Canal are amazing. Birds frequent the area, biking trails and kayaking are plentiful on the canal. Many popular areas for portraits to be taken

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.
