I've ridden my Trek 2014 domane 4.3 for thousands of miles on the canal since I got it. 25mm tires, two flats in all that time. Between Medina and Palmyra my riding area, it's mainly crushed limestone. Asphalt between Greece and Pittsford.

Here's a map from NY State showing which parts of the trail are on-road, off-road paved, or off-road gravel: https://empiretrail.ny.gov/map You'll need to zoom in a bit to differentiate between off-road paved vs gravel. Happy trails!
