Empire State Trail


The Empire State Trail is now complete! This historic project connects New York City with the Canadian Border via the Hudson River Valley Greenway and Champlain Canalway Trail and Albany with Buffalo via the Erie Canalway Trail. The initiative, a vision of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced in 2017, not only created the nation's longest multi-use trail, but is also bringing substantial health, economic, and environmental benefits to the millions of New Yorkers who live along the trail.
