This is a beautiful area. It’s one of the end points of the Augusta Canal. You can choose to do the headgate loop walking on the paved trail from the parking lot, across the lock & dam, viewing the Savannah River. The path than travels between the river and the canal. Upon reaching the bridge that crosses over the canal, you may choose to cross over & go back up to the parking lots. You may also choose to continue down the trail for as long as you wish. There are several access points to the canal, it is well liked amongst locals for walking, biking & running. The headgate loop is roughly a mile, if you continue on you can do whatever distance you wish.

I’m a mom of seven, ranging in ages from 5-19 years old. I love being outdoors, exploring nature and hiking as many new places as possible. My favorite trails are those with amazing waterfalls or breath taking views atop a mountain. I have a passion for volunteering. I’m a branch ambassador with Hike it Baby, a rape crisis advocate and Make-A-Wish volunteer.
