Working Group

The Champlain Canalway Trail Working Group (CCTWG) is a volunteer, ad hoc partnership that includes local and regional canal and trail groups, public agencies, and park and preservation organizations. The Working Group benefits 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.

Champlain Canalway Working Group’s focus since its inception has been the planning and implementation of the Champlain Canalway Trail. As the trail segments are moving to completion the group mission continues with the promotion, programming and stewardship of the trail.

The CCTWG organizes an annual keystone event, the Champlain Canalway Trail Bike Tour. As with so many events this year, the 2020 tour has been cancelled. But keep an eye on the Champlain Canalway Trail: A Path Through History Facebook page for an announcement about the bike tour Summer/Fall 2021.

CCTWG Meetings are held typically on the second Tuesday of the Month.

Next Working Group Meeting Tuesday December 7, 2021 10am Online.

Next Marketing Committee Meeting: TBD
