Erie Canalway Trail: Pittsford to Fairport Professional Review and Guide
"This historic canal towpath is now an 84-mile recreational trail, a developed stretch of the canal’s total 360 miles. This section reveals the canal’s famous Great Embankment, meanders through three charming towns, and offers food, drink, and services at each end and at its midpoint.
We won’t actually travel “15 miles on the Erie Canal”—we’ll stop at 6, enough for a satisfying walk along the water on a fine spring day or a crisp fall afternoon. In the canal’s heyday, mules walked this towpath to propel barges up and down the water’s length, and you’ll gain some appreciation for their labors as you stride along this historic, enduringly appealing pathway."
