The opening of the Erie Canal in 1825 cleared the way for goods, people, and ideas to flow from New York City to the Great Lakes and beyond. Travelers were amazed at the canal’s locks and low bridges, and encountered colorful characters, lively adventures, and hometown hospitality all along the way. You can too. Discover for yourself what you can’t read in a history book.
New York’s legendary canals present exceptional scenery, history, culture, and adventure. It is one of the finest trails in America. The trail runs 365 miles from Buffalo in the west to Albany in the east and links cities of Rochester, Syracuse, Rome, Utica, Herkimer and Schenectady. The trail is open to hikers, joggers, and bicyclists, as well as cross-country skiers in winter.
