Mohawk Towpath Byway

 

This 25-mile byway connects Waterford to Schenectady, traveling along the Erie Canal. The Mohawk Towpath Byway is a series of local, country and state highways that follow the historic route of the Erie Canal between Schenectady and Waterford/Cohoes in upstate New York.

As one travels the Byway you unlock the story of the Mohawk River, Erie Canal, the waterway west and the part our communities played in the westward expansion of the country and the Industrial Revolution.
