This message was posted sometime ago, but interestingly this Public Service Announcement made by the Canal Corporation has now become a new piece of signage along the Empire State Trail System.

It appears these signs will be located where the Erie Canal Embankment Remediation has occurred, near adjacent neighborhoods, where one of the unforeseen consequences of Dam Safety left canal neighbors vulnerable to trespassers and not feeling at all "safe", even with grass covered earthen dams.



Seems like more than one Erie Canal Neighbor is complaining, and signs like these are hopefully going to serve the purpose of keeping Empire State Trail Users on Canal Public Property, and not wandering through adjacent Erie Canal Neighbors private lands.

Of course there could also be an additional MESSAGE added to that Empire Trail Signpost... including the RULES for TRAIL USE and also the HOURS of OPERATION...

The highlighted RULES should be printed in BOLD & RED on the new signage

And hopefully the Dawn to Dusk message will get out, so that Canal Neighbors don't have to worry over roving Trail Users at all hours of the Night.
