The Hudson-Mohawk Bike Hike Trail provides a unique recreational opportunity for all to enjoy. This paved trail, approximately 35 miles in length, is constructed on the original Erie Canal Towpath and former railroad grades, which were the original transportation routes for the area. The section I visited today in Niskayuna is just a part of a much larger trail system that runs nearly the entire length of the state. The Erie Canalway Trail is a network of nearly 300 miles of multi-use trails that run from Little Falls in western NY all the way to Albany.
