Hikers in New York City have a new hiking trail to enjoy! The Empire State Trail leads all the way to the Canadian border. This trail will give hikers the opportunity to enjoy beautiful scenery and wildlife, all in their own back yard.
Patch ~ ” Hikers lacing up their boots in Battery Park City can now journey all the way to the shores of Lake Erie or the Canadian border thanks to a 750 mile trail that opened Thursday.
The Empire State Trail winds north through Manhattan, into the Hudson and to Albany, where a fork will take long-distance walkers either towards Montreal or along the Erie Canal to Buffalo.
‘There’s no trail like it in the nation – 750 miles of multi-use trail literally from Manhattan to the Canadian Border, from Buffalo to Albany. Not only does it provide an opportunity to experience the natural beauty and history of New York, but it also gives New Yorkers from every corner of the state a safe outlet for recreation as we continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic.’ [said Governor Andrew Cuomo] ” ~ Patch
