The towpath crosses Hwy 27 just south of Kingston. There is a fairly large parking lot on the east side of highway 27 (left hand side if you are going south). A tunnel runs under the highway so towpath bikers, runners and hikers do not need cross the busy road. There are restaurants and other shops in Kingston, not far from the towpath.

Rockingham, the headquarters of George Washington at the end of the Revolutionary War, is about a 1/2 mile north of here on county 603 (Laurel Ave/Kingston-Rocky Hill Road). This historical site is across the canal as one rides from here to Rocky Hill, but this segment of the canal has a second trail on its east bank. This second trail is part of the John W. Flemer Preserve. With trails on both sides of the canal, the Rocky Hill to Kingston segment of the towpath becomes a nice target for a roundtrip.
