Beautiful trail. Hiked near Brighton area. Would love to bike the entire trail sometime (60 miles towards Niagara Falls).

Beautiful walk, nice flat path.

This trail is longer than the info says. The trail can go across the locks, and over the Erie Canal and then up the other side of the gorge and around. I think the trail I took was less than 2 miles, and pretty fun. A few-hundred feet gain and not a whole lot to see otherwise.

This ever growing canal side trail is great for both hiking and biking, although given its largely nicely laid out and flat paths, it is a great opportunity for biking. I've always done random sections, usually the ones near Rochester, but for someone looking for a multi-day bike or hike, I imagine it would be fun to go for a full round trip of the trail, staying in a few of the small canal side towns as you go. The canal trail does a good job combining the nature of the area with the history of the canal. I also have also really enjoyed the few times I was able to see the canal locks in use.

Wonderful place to bike! You get a nice breeze from the canal even on a hot day. Be careful on the gravel portions of the path if you're biking--one of my friends had an accident with a stone that ended up giving her a concussion, so just use caution with how fast you're going in rockier areas.

An interesting place. All water transfer is accomplished with only water power. ( they didn't have electricity in the first half of the 19th century.)

This hike is to view the old Erie Canal locks in the center of the City of Lockport. These locks, often called the flight of 5, allow the old Erie Canal to climb the Niagara Escarpment, a geological feature which extends into Canada and forms the spine of the Bruce Trail in that country. The tour of the locks is a steep paved decline along side the 5 locks which have been disused since the creation of the two much larger Barge Canal locks which parallel the older "flight of 5". The 5 locks serve as an overflow for the newer Barge Canal. This is a short hike but there is a lot to do in the area. For a longer hike just keep walking along the canal. Stop when you reach Albany a week or so later
