Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor

Looking for a good excuse for a RV roadtrip? Concider following the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor.

Stretching 524 miles across the full expanse of upstate New York, the Erie, Champlain, Oswego, and Cayuga-Seneca Canals are among our nation’s great successes of engineering, vision, hard work, and sacrifice.

The Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor encompasses New York’s canal system and the communities that grew along its shores. It’s a place with stories to tell, great works of architecture to see, history to be learned, and hundreds of miles of scenic and recreational waterway and trails to explore.

Whether you travel 15 miles or 500, there’s much to discover on the waterway that shaped our nation.

In the town of Albion, New York, a tugboat lounges in placid waters, secured by its mooring ropes. Nearby, a sage-green bridge appears in soft focus across the same waters—those of the Erie Canal.

A peaceful stroll along the canal banks at Albion is just one of the many attractions that the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor offers. This water-based network of communities in upstate New York is a fine travel destination. You’ll find that in addition to tranquil vignettes like the scene at Albion, the Erie Canalway boasts history and outdoor recreation.

Ride on a canal boat, check out locks and bridges, and wander through towns like Seneca Falls, where an old knitting mill still stands. Go for a bike ride on the Erie Canalway Trail, where you can pedal through delicate morning mist and gaze at the rich greens (or—in autumn—yellows, oranges, and reds) of the trees that border the famous watercourse.

Reds and greens, historic towns and structures: the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor is saturated with local color. Visit theErie Canalway Website to start planning your navigation of the Erie Canal waterway.
