Add to Itinerary
Details

The Glens Falls Feeder Canal Trail begins at the Feeder Dam in Glens Falls and follows the Hudson River through town to the Champlain Canal, then turns south toward Fort Edward. The 8-mile trail follows a portion of one of New York's few remaining sections of the original 1820s canal system. There is one short on-road segment (1 mile) through Glens Falls that goes around the paper mill.
The Glens Falls Feeder Canal Trail is part of the 71-mile Champlain Canalway Trail. As of 2011, only about 17 miles of the Champlain Canalway Trail are complete; another 14 miles are being planned or expected to be finished within the next few years. A multi-use trail, some sections will be open to snowmobiles.
