Locks 35 and 36

Mile 62.33 - It gets a little complicated here.  This is a three way stop:  to the left is where inlet lock 3 flows into the canal.  The towpath has been rerouted here and would have normally crossed over the the inlet lock to the little footbridge over lock 35 you can see here.  Instead, NPS has routed around to the mouth of the inlet lock.  If you want to take the original route, cross here to where you see the footbridge and it'll take you to lock 36.

If you take the original towpath route, you'll see that instead of a bypass flume, there's a drydock for repairing boats.

Mile 62.44 - That's right, there's two locks within a tenth of a mile of each other. There's not much left as the lock has been filled with earth and all that remains is the little brown sign that says "Lock 36".  The lockhouse was shared with the dam 3 inlet lock (next page).
