This trail extends almost 400 miles across upstate New York between downtown Albany and downtown Buffalo. It connects almost every major upstate city, as well as many smaller villages in between. In fact, there is a town every 10 or 15 miles on this route-as far as a mule could pull a barge in a day. If a mule could make it with a barge, you can make it on your bike.
