Looking to ride approximately 150 Mi of trail. For myself, my girlfriend, ??(maybe) and others ??(very maybe) Advise on what could be considered the most scenic & historical points of interest. Want to camp (improved sites),airbnbs or hotel,known good grub but staying true to the trail route as possible and away from big cities. Big on list is natural beauty &wildlife viewing. Avoiding worst time of year for black fly, no seeums and mosquitos. Thank you in advance for any replies. Brian

Brian, Please do yourself and others on the forum a favor and provide some more information about your proposed logistics. Are you looking for a one-way tour or do you need advise on an out-and-back type of situation. Responses will be more targeted to your needs.

The eastern sections have more lodging available and are more sheltered from winds and sun. A pleasant ~150 mile ride is from Spencerport to Utica. If you want to use Amtrak to return on a one way ride Syracuse or Rome to Albany has Amtrak stations and is about 150 miles. The Castle in Amsterdam is a fun place to stay with excellent Italian restaurants a few blocks away.
