(Erie Canalway Heritage)
Bouckville, the Town of Eaton and Hamilton hold and protect the summit of the 177-year-old Chenango Canal that was originally 97 miles long. The Chenango Canal linked Binghamton and the Pa. coal mines to the Erie Canal in Utica. Today, more than seven miles are cleared along the 10-foot wide towpath for a pleasant walk that may be used by birders, dog-walkers, horseback riders and mountain bikes as well as people enjoying the outdoors. No motorized vehicles are allowed. The trail head near the Cottage Museum in Bouckville is on the corner of Route 20 & Canal Road. The museum is open April through October from 10 to 5 daily. It is self-toured unless an appointment is made for a historic tour of the canal by calling 315.893.7910. From scenic Route 20, the Towpath Trail connects to Hamilton in 4.5 miles in the southerly direction; and ends at Oriskany Creek in a lovely waterfall in another 3 miles in the northerly direction, near Solsville. Other trail heads are located at the corner of Elm Street & Canal Road, Bouckville; the corner of County Route 46 and Canal Road, Woodman Road, Hamilton at Woodman Pond; Montgomery Street, Hamilton next to the courthouse, Eaton Street, Hamilton, across from the Hooks Wiltsie Ball Field and the railroad bed trail. ...Search ...Map
