Itinerary:

Ferries and a Canal

Paddle past the remnants of Susquehanna Division of Pennsylvania Canal, founded in 1831. You will see the scattered remains of the locks and canal bed along the river. Be sure to avoid these obstacles. A little further downriver, on the eastern shore, you will probably encounter the Millerburg Ferry. This ferry is the only river crossing ferry left in operation that began in 1825. This ferry was operated by manpower until 1873 when steam power and the paddle wheel were invented.
