Chemung Basin River Trail: Extending the Link to the Bay
Chemung Basin River Trail
The Chemung Basin River Trail is a 40-mile water trail route along an upper tributary of the Susquehanna River in New York. The project will create five new river access sites with water trail kiosks, resulting in a doubling of the length of the water trail route to 82 miles. The access points will be added along the Canisteo and Cohocton Rivers which flow into the Chemung Watershed. Low-maintenance bayscaping materials native to the region will be used at each access point to help create a high-value wildlife habitat/riparian buffer. This work will be done in conjunction with volunteer efforts of the Steuben County Master Gardeners Program, local Environmental Management Councils, and area civic groups.
