The Chesapeake & Delaware (C&D) Canal provides a safe, time-saving passage between Delaware Bay and the Chesapeake Bay. The 12-mile-long sea level cut has no locks nor tolls, inviting a great deal of commercial shipping traffic. The canal provides pleasant stretches of woods and fields, a handful of bridges in styles old and new and the opportunity to be part of the boat parade for those on the Ben Cardin C&D Canal hike-and-bike trail.
