Champlain Canalway Trail Working Groups   

The Champlain Canalway Trail Working Groups are volunteer, ad hoc partnerships that include local and regional canal and trail groups, public agencies, and park and preservation organizations.

The groups benefit from the existing network of the Canalway Trail Association of New York, a statewide, all-volunteer organization of trail owners and managers formed to assist localities to develop, manage, and maintain the Canalway Trail.
The vision of this trail is " for an attractive and continuous Champlain Canalway Trail route from Whitehall to Waterford, that uses historic towpaths, Champlain Canal shoreline, existing local and regional trails, on-street bicycle routes and links to regional and community attractions".

Slate Valley Rail Trail (SVRT)

The Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation awarded The Town of Granville $250K through CFA Round 2018 Environmental Protection Fund: Parks, Preservation and Heritage Grant program

The project will extend the Slate Valley Rail Trail (SVRT) north from Depot Street to Cross Road, bringing the SVRT closer to realizing the project goal, to link with the D&H Rail Trail that runs through Vermont. For a more detailed description of the SVRT check out the Slate Valley Rail Trail Feasibility Study below.

In 2016 an ad hoc working group was brought together to begin working towards creating and connecting the Slate Valley Rail Trail in Granville and Salem. The development of the proposed 22 mile multi-use recreational trail offers an opportunity to bring economic benefit and recreational opportunities to the region, with connections to Vermont and trails beyond in New Hampshire and Maine.
