Begin your journey in the east, west, or right in the middle of New York State, you can't go wrong-- the canal's treasures are strong together along the waterway like gems on a necklace. The canal is accessible by CAR, RAIL, BIKE, and BOAT and from major airports: Albany International (ALB), Syracuse Hancock International (SYR), Greater Rochester International (ROC), and Buffalo-Niagara International (BUF).
Weather along the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor can vary greatly from one end of the Corridor to the other. Lake effect snows in winter from Buffalo to Syracuse may only be flurries by Utica, and merely cloudy skies in Albany. Clearing skies in Rochester may be the wake of a heavy thunderstorm that has moved on to Saratoga Springs.
