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 dense forests which hang over the canal. It is extremely picturesque, and the two lakes are just stunning. Seneca Lake is 600+ feet deep with crystal clear drinking water.
