New York State Canalway Trail System
The New York State Canalway Trail System is comprised of a network of more than 260 miles of existing multi-use, recreational trails across upstate New York. Major segments are adjacent to the waterways of the New York State Canal System or follow remnants of the historic original canals of the early 1800s that preceded today's working Canal System.
The Canalway Trail System is comprised of four major segments: the 100 mile Erie Canal Heritage Trail in Western New York; the 36 mile Old Erie Canal State Park Trail in Central New York; the 60 mile Mohawk-Hudson Bikeway in the eastern Capital Region, and the eight mile Glens Falls Feeder Canal Heritage Trail in the foothills of the Adirondacks near Lake George. In addition, there are smaller segments of Canalway Trail, including this 28 mile section of the Old Erie Canal Trail that travels between Port Byron and Camillus.
These trail segments and other areas of the Canalway Trail System connect with trails leading throughout New York State, providing one of the most extensive trail networks in the country. The New York State Canal Corporation's long range goal for the Canalway Trail System is to create a cross-State network of multi-use trails that will span nearly 500 miles across upstate New York.
Old Erie Canal Trail - Port Byron to Camillus
A twenty eight mile completed section of the Canal Trail runs from Schasel Park in Port Byron to NY 173 near Camillus, NY. Highlights include the old Centreport Aqueduct near Weedsport, Lock 51 near Jordan, as well as Erie Canal Park in Camillus. The Erie Canal Aqueduct over Nile Mile Creek was rebuilt to give visitors a chance to see what the old aqueducts looked like back in the 1800's.
Below are links of sections of the trail to give you an opportunity to take a closer look at the trail.
