Erie Canal Bicyclist & Hiker Route Guide
This book describes a 625 mile romp on canal towpaths and parallel rural routes. It includes the Erie, Lake Champlain, Seneca/Cayuga, and Oswego Canals in New York State and the Chambly Canal in Quebec. The towpaths are perfect for mountain bikers. Road cyclists will glide along on lightly trafficked parallel rural roads for the 25 % of tow paths that are dirt or gravel surfaced. (200 pages, pub. date: December 1997)
