Erie Canal & Finger Lakes - 2019

Erie Canal / Finger Lakes 2019

The scenic Erie Canal Trail is steeped in history. This is a trail that is on many peoples’ bucket list. And for good reason! For our tour we have selected 3 consecutive days on the trail. Nearby, just to the south lies the beautiful Finger Lakes region. To get a taste of local wine, and do a little road riding along the quiet shores of Keuka Lake, we will travel to the quaint lakeside town of Geneva. You may wish to extend your trip in order to visit nearby Niagara Falls, although we will not include this in our tour activities.
