Things To Know Before You Come


Tug Urger on the Champlain Canal at Whitehall.

The canal is typically open from May 1 through November 15. It is closed to boat traffic during the winter. Most towpath sections of the Erie Canalway Trail are open year around from dawn until dusk. Canal communities and attractions are also open year round. We advise checking winter hours if visiting from November through April.
