Any recent trail reports?

www .canals. ny.gov /trails/projects.html states that the section from Rome to Utica is closed due to spring flooding. Does anyone know if that report is up to date? I'm starting a Buffalo to Albany trip at the end of June.

We had a bit of spring rains, but not enough to flood out the trail. There are a couple of sections leaving Rome that are mostly stone dust, and they can get muddy after a rainfall. There are a couple of sections that have washed out in the past - that may be what's posted. I just rode the section from Rome to Lock 21, and it was bone dry.
