If you are planning to walk a section of the Erie Canal, this is a great section – from Adams Basin Inn (and be sure to stay there because Pat and Dave will send you off with a great breakfast; Pat is an artist with food!) to Rochester.
First, only three miles down the trail was a great welcome center in Spencerport run by a very welcoming young woman, Nora. Then it was only three more miles to huge Greece Canal Park, where we could picnic.
Then Henpeck Park (wasn’t explained but we can all hypothesize) and Junction Lock – which used to be something but isn’t anymore.
Lots of people on the trail today to visit with, lots of people fishing and boaters are venturing out.
I was nervous about trekking through Rochester because of traffic, but there’s a lovely trail!! And our motel, the Radiance, is practically on the trail. Hopefully, tomorrow for the second half of Rochester, the trail is as nice.
