Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)
Running 42 miles (67.6 km) from Preston to Kendal, the Lancaster Canal took over 30 years to complete, opening in 1826. The canal was used to transport boats carrying coal and other commercial traffic until 1947.
Today, the peaceful canal is popular among cyclists and walkers, as well as varied wildlife.

I cycled from Garstang towards Lancaster earlier this week. For a lot of the 7 or 8 miles I did, the vegetation was shoulder high, and leaning across the path at times. Proceed with caution.
