Canals are what made New York the Empire State! For more than a century and a half, the Erie Canal played a vital role in the industry and economy of our city. Today the canal is quiet, dry and largely forgotten by passing motorists. This tour uncovers the incredible history hidden right under our noses. We begin at Lock 8 Park and travel 10 miles round trip along the Mohawk-Hudson Bike Trail.
Admission is $15 and BYOBike. Estimated tour time is 1.5 hours.
