Hike Through A Canal Spillway In New York For An Incredible Underground Adventure

The history of northern New York is tied into the Erie Canal, one of the most important construction projects in American history – and in Niagara County, people flood to a fascinating attraction. No, not those iconic falls – think lower. The Erie Canal is controlled by a series of locks which raise and lower ships, and part of that system includes a man-made cave system underneath it in the town of Lockport, New York. Now you can enter this mysterious canal spillway, well over a century old, for a one-of-a-kind underground hike in New York.
