We started our multi-day Erie Canal bike ride in Utica. Thought we would have an easy time finding trail head (and were told so by people in the city) but did not. Trail runs west but on East side there’s a chain link fenced gate across w 3 padlocks. No signage. We turned around and went all the way back to road, and on-road till Frankfort.

Has anyone else had this experience? Not sure how long that gate has been there? Super poor signage. Just don’t waste your time looking for the trail like we did. Just go on road to Frankfort and then you can pick it up and easy from there till Albany.
