Looking at the pictures below... both taken on an Embankment Dam section of along the Erie Canal, please chose the one that represents the view you would prefer if riding or walking along the Top of these dams.

Understand Two Facts:
1) The picture with trees adjacent to the trail is known to be UNSAFE and has not been maintained properly for 75 years

2) The picture with the houses in view is that same Embankment Dam, after the Canal Corporation has rehabilitated the dam to today's standards, restoring the Erie canal to the way it was when new, 100 years ago.

Which Embankment Dam would you feel safer on? Which one of these Embankments is both safe & scenic?

TREE LINED EMBANKMENT TRAIL


CLEARED EMBANKMENT TRAIL


As a reward for answering our surveys here's a little bonus picture for you... a nice background for your mobile phone or tablet



Thanks again for your help,
Doug & Mike
