An Unusual Erie Canal Experience
My wife and I took a boat trip west on the Erie Canal for a few days this past September. We were eager to enjoy a few days of end-of-summer cruising. The canal remains a scenic, enjoyable waterway with plentiful recreation options on and off the water. You can catch a big bass on the canal, ride your bicycle on rustic waterside trails and visit historic nationally significant sites all on the same day. The Locks are professionally maintained and operated by the New York State Canal Corporation and the New York Power Authority, helping boaters navigate the waterway in an efficient and safe manner.
