Recreation

You can walk, bike, run, canoe or kayak the seven mile canal and nine mile towpath. Some recreational enthusiasts have used cross country skis and snowshoes on the towpath and canal during the winter months! The recreational possibilities along this historic treasure are abundant.

Your furry friends are also very welcome on the towpath. We only ask that you pick up after your pets and keep them on a leash.

Motorized vehicles are not allowed on the towpath except for the handicap access to the Five Combines from Burgoyne Avenue in Hudson Falls down to the T-bridge. We appreciate all your efforts to help maintain a clean and user friendly towpath and canal.
