Old Erie Canal State Park is a 36-mile stretch of the 363-mile Old Erie Canal, which has been designated a National Recreational Trail by the National Parks Service. The terrain is woodland and wetland that present opportunities for hiking, picnicking, horseback riding, bicycling, canoeing, fishing, snowmobiling and geocaching! Several areas have footbridges that aid access to the canal towpath where visitors can view the remnants of stone aqueducts.
You can visit the 10 locations in any order. There are many places to park for free along the trail. You may wish to pay admission for the Chittenango Landing Canal Boat Museum or Canastota Canal Town Museum to learn more about the history.
