I'd think canals and riverbanks would always be a handy wee rat run if you wanted to move quietly. Just don't fall in.

Whilst not strictly on-topic, but in the same vein, we have 100s of miles of railways in this country. Some are still in use, (Great Western Railways not so much :x )obviously, but a lot are now disused. They have one point in common with the waterways, though - they are all built on flat terrain so will make easy progress when in a "get home" scenario.
Just because I'm paranoid, doesn't mean they're not all out to get me

Walking on ballast is not as easy as you think. It is tiring and walking just a mile can be challenging. Sleepers and rail are slippery and dangerous to walk on, third rail is deadly at 750v dc. Though i will use the railways to return home if i'm in work when SHTF as i drive trains for a living.
