About

A truly fun tour, with quite a few unusual opportunities that no other tour has ever provided. 
As a special finale activity, each of our visitors will have an opportunity to step into the shoes of an 1842 Flight of Five Lock Tender and work alongside our Flight of Five Tender Crew, to move the balance beams, and open the gates that allow the “Erie Traveler” to pass through the restored locks! Can YOU work the locks like they used to? We know you can!

This makes a fantastic finale to our tour exploration of Uppertown's historic iconic sites, an Underground Railroad Station, and discover a true Lockport Civil War Celebrity. We will hike down to walk along the Historic Mill Race area in our Industrial District, where the Erie Canal's water power was harnessed to run the mills and factories of Lowertown of the 1800s and learn more about the lost lifestyle of the Canalers!

Meet at the Discovery Center - corner of Church St and Ontario St. Ample free parking is available close by

This 7 mile bike trek travels along portions of Lockport’s Lowertown and Uppertown, featuring historical stops including the Deep Cut, Erie Canal Flight of Five Locks, and our Lowertown Historic District, as well as forgotten train stations and lost homes of famous inventors!This 7 mile bike trek travels along portions of Lockport’s Lowertown and Uppertown, featuring historical stops including the Deep Cut, Erie Canal Flight of Five Locks, and our Lowertown Historic District, as well as forgotten train stations and lost homes of famous inventors!We ride on the famous towpath where Hoggees and their teams spent a great portion of their lives puling and towing the boats for decades on the early Erie Canal.The vistas are dramatic, and the story of how 19th century Navvies excavated up and over the ‘mountain ridge’ are compelling. If your stamina allows, gear down and climb the 60’ ascent back to the Locks District!

Lockport began with the digging of the canal and the building of the locks, and immediately became famous because of them. Come see the canal like it exists nowhere else in the entire NYS Erie Canal Corridor. The towpath begins and ends in Lockport today. No longer does it connect as it originally did.Come see why people come from all over the country and the world, just to ride on our towpath!
