Old Erie Canal Lock 62 is tucked just far enough off the beaten path that many do not realize it’s there, just over the hill behind Pittsford Plaza.
The trails at Meridian Centre Park are flat; some are gravel, others wood chip, with a section of beautiful boardwalk. There are nature paths & an arboretum in the western part of the park with plantings and wooden arches making this a popular destination for bird watchers.
Great Embankment Park has a small sitting area, a few benches, a small boat launch and a dock great for fishing; perfect to start your trip along the canal.
The Erie Canal spans 100-miles between Lockport and Lyons, with Rochester located right in the middle. Choose just 15 miles to explore for a great day trip!
