Geocache Description:

Parking area may not be plowed. There is only room for 2 or 3 cars on the side of road near the sign for area and then you would have to back up into the busy route 10. We were the only truck there and I used 4 wheel drive to make turning around easier and getting back onto road.

The Farmington Aqueduct was for the Northhampton canal. This canal ran from Northampton to New Haven from 1828 to 1848. It came down thru Westfield and Southwick, MA. It used north, middle and south Congamond ponds in Southwick. In Farmington, it is a short level walk down old towpath until you get near river, but still not too steep. A covered sign post has the history of area and a wooden model of aqueduct. There is a new metal sign with pictures. There is a oval picture and a square picture taht have the same year. Email the year to me to claim it as a find. Do not log your answer, not even encrypted.
