  • Great scenery - excellent weather - easy walk
  • I live in the Williamsport area and I walk the canal quite often. This August was the grand opening of the Aquaduct and everything was just great,but unfortunately the rest of the canal and the towpaths have not been taken care off. I stopped and talked to a Park service employee and they confirmed what I suspected. The tow path sides have not been mowed all summer do to a lack of personnel. They are doing a great job with the few employees that they have.
