New York finishes work on 750-mile Empire State Trail

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York State officials say they have finished work on a 750-mile trail for cyclists, hikers and runners that spans the state.

The Empire State Trail is expected to attract 8.6 million residents and tourists a year, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said this week.

The trail, most of which is off road, runs north from New York City through the Hudson and Champlain Valleys to Canada, and from Albany west to Buffalo along the Erie Canal.

The project included the creation of more than 180 miles of new off-road trail and also connected 400 miles of previous trails.

“There’s no trail like it in the nation,” Cuomo said in a news release. “Not only does it provide an opportunity to experience the natural beauty and history of New York, but it also gives New Yorkers from every corner of the state a safe outlet for recreation as we continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic.”
