    Most do not know that the Canal Trail actually starts at 437 George Washington Hwy S. Chesapeake, VA 23323 (Hwy 17)(Deep Creek Park).

    Great running trail but boring and flat. Lots of parking though

    Still in use today, the canal was created at the suggestion of George Washington, and remains the oldest operating artificial waterway in the U.S. Take in its history by bicycle, horseback or boat.

    Did you know this canal served as part of the Underground Railroad? The canopy of woods and winding waterways provided safer passage to the north for former slaves seeking better lives.

    Where else can you see 200 species of birds, 8 types of plant communities and tons of mammals, including adorable river otters?

    Great paved trail for running or cycling without having to worry about traffic. Most of the trail is shaded.
