Grateful walking biking walking your dog and watching ships pass through the Cape Cod Canal. People cast the fishing lines in hopes of a nightly meal. Folks who live on the canal put lobster traps out for lunch.

I've been along the canal walkway multiple times. From running a few miles to taking a leisurely stroll with the family, this area epitomizes New England nautical nostalgia. Not only do salty, briny smells greet the nose, visitors to the area will see sea birds...More

How can one not enjoy spending time on the canal watching the water, boats, yachts and huge commercial vessels pass by. Usually there is a breeze on a warm sunny day making it more comfortable. Bring a chair and sit for awhile!

This canal has places to walk running parallel to it. It is a great place for walking or riding bikes as it is totally flat. Also, the canal itself provides something nice to look at as there are always boats of all sizes passing. We...More

I biked, ran or walked the Sagamore side path every day while camping at Scusset State Reservation. It's 7 miles long, paved and almost flat, with wonderful views all along the canal. Lots of wildlife, interesting boats and barges, a few places where you can...More
