My wife and I are planning to cycle the canal in June or July. We are taking the Amtrak from Buffalo to Albany but not sure what station is closest to the trail. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Schenectady Train Station is closest to the Empire State Trail. The other amtrak station is in Rensselaer.

taking the train to Rensselaer is right near the Mohawk Hudson trail that will connect you to the Erie. Cross the Hudson River on the Dunn Memorial bridge and that will bring you directly to the Mohawk Hudson
