Fayette - Waterloo Map
(photos below)
As the proposed trail approaches the Village of Waterloo there is evidence of ATV and dirt bike use of the railroad corridor and adjacent properties (Figure 12). Restricting access to the trail by motorized recreational vehicles must be addressed during the design phase of the project. Within the Village of Waterloo the railroad corridor passes directly north of the Soil and Water Conservation District warehouses. The proposed trail then turns to the northeast, off the railroad corridor, through the former NYSDOT Residency to Lock CS-4 (Figures 13 and 14). From the NYSDOT property it will use the roadway adjacent to Lock
CS-4 (Figure 14) to the intersection of Route 96. The trail will follow Huff Street (Figure 15) to the southeast both on the roadway and on new sidewalks until it reaches the abandoned railroad corridor. It will then follow the NYSEG-owned corridor east through the village. The Village of Waterloo has developed a walking tour that links the Canal Trail to significant historic buildings and services in the village center, including the National Park Service’s M’Clintock House. The Canal Trail will follow the abandoned railroad corridor past Waterloo’s Wastewater Treatment Plant located towards the east edge of the village (Figure 16). The trail will cross an existing railroad bridge over Silver Creek (Figure 17). New decking and railings will be required.
