The Canalway Trails Association New York, in collaboration with Parks & Trails New York and the New York State Canal Corporation, initiated Canalway Trail Ambassadors in order to provide a “presence” on the trail and enhance the experiences of trail users. The role of the Trail Ambassador is three-fold: to assist and inform trail users, monitor the trail and conditions along it, and to promote trail courtesy, safety and awareness of the trail as a valuable public resource.
In 2008, Ambassadors are being placed on the segment of trail in Niskayuna as a pilot project under the auspices of the Friends of the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail.
Below are photos taken at the “Opening Event” held Saturday, August 2nd at Lyons Park Train Station.
