Event Type Walk/Hike Description Tour the new Regional Visitor Center in Schuylerville, NY and register to be part of a group (limited to 15) that will gather across the street on the Towpath that is now part of the Champlain Canalway and Empire Trail system. The group will walk the towpath to and around the Schuyler House then up to Broadstreet and on to the historical Bullard Block. (Window Shopping is encouraged.) During the walk a narrator will share historical facts and legends about the influence of the canal, the Schuyler’s and the early businesses that grew the village.

This walk will end at the Bullard Block in downtown Schuylerille, where there are plenty of shops and dining options. It is a short walk back to the Visitor's Center and participants are invited to return at their leisure. Sponsoring Organization Hudson Crossing Park and Historic Hudson Hoosic Rivers Partnership
