that connects New York to Montreal. The corridor largely follows near U.S. ROUTE 7 through the very western portions of CT, MA AND VT. It links with the EAST COAST GREENWAY at the Merritt Parkway near Norwalk, CT. at the Southern terminus, and with QUEBEC’S ROUTE VERTE at the Northern terminus (Canadian border).
Trails along the route south to north:

The tour offers options of about 60-80 miles each day.

Just a simple note to say, that recently I took advantage of your Erie Canal “ride with gps” ride posted online, and traveled the route in exact detail. I had a great time cycling across New York State, and thus turned my adventures into a book just recently, titled:
Bicycling The Erie Canal: Stories and Insight Leading Up to One Memorable Ride
Some sections were a little sketchy, and wildly overgrown, but I thoroughly enjoyed the added adventure.
