Empire State Trail System - August 2021 Final Report
« on: August 18, 2021, 10:41:37 am »
For those who think that the NYS Canal Corporation operates and manages the Empire Trail along side of the Canal system, that work is now being done by a new group in New York State The Hudson Greenway Commission. The NYS Canal Corporation still maintains the vegetation along many canal trail sections, part of the "shared responsibilities" that many NYS Agencies have adopted as cost-cutting measures.

Their website is: https://hudsongreenway.ny.gov

You can find information about all the NY Trails they now manage here: https://hudsongreenway.ny.gov/trails

Here's the website for the Empire Trail: https://empiretrail.ny.gov/

And here's the Final Report on Trail Improvements & Usage Numbers for the EMPIRE TRAIL, which the Erie Canal Trail is part of, quite surprising.
