The Travels of Tug 44

A Photo Tour of
The Cayuga-Seneca Canal

The Cayuga-Seneca Canal connects the Erie Barge Canal to Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake. It begins at the Erie Canal at Mile 201 near the Richmond Aqueduct in Montezuma, and runs south about 4 miles to Cayuga Lake. From there it runs another 12 miles past Seneca falls and Waterloo, to Seneca Lake. Its total length is about 16 miles.

This canal is narrow and runs through forests which hang over the canal. It is picturesque, and the two lakes are beautiful. Seneca Lake is 600+ feet deep with crystal clear water.

Here are some of the towns and points of interest on the Cayuga-Seneca Canal (with mile markers):
