Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site is the only location where visitors can witness three of the major phases of the Erie Canal construction. The site contains a portion of the original Clinton’s Ditch” canal as well as several features from the enlarged canal such as locks and the remains of the Schoharie Creek Aqueduct. Schoharie Crossing is also adjacent to the Erie Canal of today. Much of the site is along the Schoharie Creek and Mohawk River and features not only nature trails and history but also great recreational opportunities. Come picnic or paddle from the boat launch, or enjoy a stroll on the miles of towpath trails. Bring your bike and peddle east or west on the Canalway Bike Path that connects to the site. Stop into the Visitor Center for more information and a trail map.
