Info: This trail is a biking/walking/ski trail along what was once the Black River Canal.  One end of the trail starts at the village entrance and runs south to an existing multi-purpose recreation trail system as well as  the Boonville Youth Athletic Association ball fields and the Headwaters Shopping Plaza.  The trail also connects to other trails which are part of the BREIA (Black River Environmental Improvement Association) trails system.  Along the trail you will cross a 19th Century Whipple Bridge and eventually walk or ride parallel to Route 46. After 6+ miles you will arrive at Pixley Falls State Park and Route 46.
