Lock 1 is the first lock station on a fascinating journey from Lake Ontario through the 386 km long Trent-Severn Waterway leading to Georgian Bay. Easily accessible from Highway 401, the Loyalist Parkway and the scenic Apple Route, Lock 1 is a favourite stopping point for car travelers. Staff are available to brief new canal users on how to lock through and they will provide tips on how best to enjoy canal boating. There is good public transportation from here, making it a popular location for boaters to change over crews.
