Great Lakes Seaway Trail

We recently finished the Great Lakes Seaway Trail Geo Trail. We capped a week in New York state with a visit to the Niagara Falls Visitor Center on Saturday afternoon. It was a super trail. There were five sections and five coins. Each section got a little better heading West to East.

This trail is about the history of the trail and the areas where it passes. For me, it was all about the water and the wonderful places to see. If your a lighthouse fan, you won't regret doing this trail. The trail is getting a little old and is probably nearing its last days, but it was an awesome adventure for us. We spread the trail over almost two years of journeys. The images below move you from west in Erie County Pennsylvania to the eastern end of our journey at the Saint Lawrence.
