Great Lakes Seaway Trail
The Great Lakes Seaway Trail byway parallels the St. Lawrence Seaway and Great Lakes in New York and Pennsylvania. This adventure includes Niagara Falls; 1000 Islands; 29 lighthouses; War of 1812, farm, and nature sites; welcoming harbors, world-class sportfishing, bridges/ferries to/from Canada, and the Seaway Trail Discovery Center.
Niagara Gorge on the Western Great Lakes Seaway Trail was New York’s second Important Bird Area (IBA), designated by the Audubon Society for its significance to at least 18 species of gulls as well as terns, ducks, geese, swans, hawks and falcons. Along Lake Ontario northwest of Rochester, NY, large concentrations of waterfowl congregate at Braddock Bay IBA in early spring. You will hear American Woodcocks at dawn and dusk. Common Snipes winnow overhead from March to June and owls are definite specialties here. Fifteen miles to the east of Rochester, see peregrine falcons nesting atop the Kodak Tower via Falconcam.
Take a few days with your sweetheart on the Great Lakes Seaway Trail and experience the natural beauty of its winding waterways and picturesque towns together.
