The Murray Canal is a 5 mile (8 km) long cut built in the 1880's as a direct route from the western approaches of Lake Ontario.

   This portion of the Waterway has a total of 18 locks, including 2 sets of flight locks and hosts a number of attractions that vary from the largest air force base in Canada - Canadian Forces Base Trenton, to the Ranney Gorge Suspension Bridge.
