The Mohawk River Trail is a pleasant, shared use pathway connecting residential sites, local parks & schools, historical sites and business districts within the city of Rome, New York. At its southern end, the trail connects to the Erie Canalway Trail, a nearly 300-mile canal trail running the breadth of New York State.
You can kick off your journey at the trail’s actual beginning on Beacon Street, or you could choose to begin farther south at Bellamy Harbor Park right on the banks of the Erie Canal. From the latter to connect to the former, you have to travel via the sidewalk on Erie Boulevard until you get to Fort Stanwix National Monument, where you can pivot east towards the beginning of the off-road trail. The trail meanders north for a flat, easy ride or walk alongside the Mohawk River through a shaded riverine woodland. Past the Old Oneida County Cemetery, the Riverwalk stops at Chestnut Street and bends into Haselton-Wright Park.
There are variety of parking options along this route. From south to north, you can park at:
Freshly paved and very accessible! We took a stroller and had no trouble! Walkway is clean and clearly marked. You do cross the road a couple times if you do the whole trail, but they are safe crosswalks!
