The Savannah-Ogeechee Barge Canal is a historic canal that begins with a tidal lock at the Savannah River and continues for more than 16 miles through four lift locks, eventually making its way to another tidal lock at the Ogeechee River. Visitors can view the final lock at the Ogeechee Canal and Museum, located on Highway 204 just outside of Savannah. The site features more than five miles of hiking trails that wind by the Ogeechee River, 200 acres of swamp and woodland, and a museum and nature center that feature exhibits on the canal's history, archeology, birding and other local attractions. The site is managed by the Savannah-Ogeechee Canal Society and admission is a bargain.
