Bike the trail in a few weeks. Wondering if the 700x35 Gravelking Slicks that I have on my bike are good for the trail or I should get something with larger or bigger treads?

I've ridden many thousands of miles on the canal with 700 x 25c with out much trouble. Two flats, one a pinch in all that time. The only real problem I've had was washouts after heavy rains. I generally ride the same end to end 70 mile length in my area. Can't speak for it all.

I have ridden hundreds of Canal miles with GK SS+ 38s on my bike without issue. You'll be fine. Have fun!
