A group of us are riding from Buffalo to Albany early June. Wondering where to fill up water bottles? Do the parks where "Restrooms" are designated on the Interactive Map usually have drinking fountains? Also, are they operating during Covid? Thanks for any help!

I'm on so I might as well answer! There are not any designated drinking fountains or refilling stations on the Canalway. And, as you pointed out, don't expect parks with facilities to be open when COVID is still an active part of our existence. Rather, you are always close-by to towns and villages. Replenishing your water supply should not be a concern. Fill up at convenience stores, restaurants or anything close that works! Last year as I headed out in early June with COVID's early onset, I was more concerned about where I might find "comfort stations" -- I can assure you that even with everything in an upset... I never had an issue finding a place available (and I was bike-packing).
