Rack up the Regions!

The Erie Canal and Canalway Trail are divided into distinct regions, each roughly 90 miles. Rack up all four regions to become a 360 End-to-Ender! Connecting canals offer more opportunities for adventure. You can count miles on any of these canals toward your Canalway Challenge total.
