A new trail bridge is needed to cross Sucker Brook (Figure 22). The 1.75-mile Frank J. Ludovico Sculpture Trail (Figure 21) begins at Sucker Brook and continues for 1.75 miles to the Bridge Street intersection in the Village of Seneca Falls. The Ludovico Trail was developed by volunteers and is managed by a non-profit, membership organization - Frank J. Ludovico Sculpture Trail, Inc. The trail is home to numerous sculptures inspired by the women’s rights movement and created primarily by women scupltors. The trail has been cleared and graded, but does not have an improved trail surface. It is anticipated that stone dust will be installed when the Canal Trail is constructed. A trailhead (Figure 23) with a small parking area and trail information is located west of and adjacent to Bridge Street. Trail users can cross the canal at Bridge Street to visit the Women’s Rights National Historical Park, the Seneca Falls Canal Harbor (Figure 24), the Seneca Falls Heritage Area, and other village attractions and services. They can return to the trail by crossing on Bridge or Ovid Streets or can follow a loop around Van Cleef Lake that ends at Lock No. 2, near the National Park Service’s Stanton House. The trail route across the Knitting Mill (Figure 25) between Bridge and Ovid Streets will be designed as site plans for Knitting Mill reuse are developed.
