America’s longest multi-use state trail. It’s the Empire State Trail, a 750-mile trail that crosses New York from Manhattan north to the Canadian border in Rouses Point near the northern tip of Lake Champlain, and also from Buffalo to Albany. Open to cyclists, hikers, walkers, snowshoers, and cross-country skiers, the project to combine some preexisting segments with more than 180 miles of new off-road trails, started in 2017 and was fully completed in December 2020. The trail offers areas of great natural beauty, historic sites, museums, cultural attractions, craft brew-pubs, wineries, and a variety of winter outdoor recreation opportunities. The Empire State Trail connects New York’s extraordinary experiences, people, and places.
