Postponed due to rain on National Trails Day, the Canalway Trails Association New York, Parks & Trails New York, the New York State Canal Corporation, and the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor Commission have rescheduled the third annual Canalway Trail Celebration for August 12, 2006. Volunteers who have adopted sections of the Trail host a trek along the entire 39 miles of the Trail within Monroe County. Rain or shine, one relay team of cyclists and runners travels west from Wayne County, while another team travels east from Orleans County, and take turns relaying a celebration flag.
Inline skaters can join this relay on paved segments starting either from Schoen Place to the east or from Long Pond Rd to the west, and converge together onto Genesee Valley Park at 1pm. So long as the weather remains fair and the Trail dry, skaters from the Rochester Inline Skate Club can gather at Genesee Valley Park and skate to each start and reconverge at Genesee Valley Park, while others join at various points. Please see this timetable.
And bring your friends, whether on foot, bicycle, or skate!
