Didn't even realize this was here until geocaching brought us to the area. Unfortunately there was no action today for this area, but very cool set up to witness.

We actually canoed a bit of the Cayuga-Seneca Canal, but above Lock 4 in Waterloo. The canal is an awesome, interesting, paddle. But, we didn't go through any locks. However, we did watch some locks "in action," and they are fascinating to watch.

We went looking for the canal and just happened to get to the locks in time to see the passage of 2 yachts. It was great fun to see the mechanics in motion.

This is quite a mechanical and engineering feat here! Unfortunately the locks did not have to open for any travelers during our visit but it is a well-kept, quiet oasis and worth checking out, especially if you are into waterways.

Seneca Falls is about waterways. Do not look for any falls though they were leveled to put in the canal. You can walk down to the canal from the main street (Falls St) and you are there. While I was there, four "boats" were docked...More

We traveled through Cayuga-Seneca on our way to and from Seneca Falls. Locks 2/3 were the biggest and most awesome ones we went through on our trip. The canal is pretty quiet.

We kind of stumbled on to this place (by car) and were so glad we did! You can actually walk right next to the canal lock and might even see a boat go through the lock system as we did the day we visited. There...More

The Cayuga Seneca Canal is both a working waterway, and an interesting place to visit and view from land. By water, the ride from the north end of Cayuga Lake to the Seneca Falls Locks (#2 & #3) is about 1/2 hour at the 10MPH...More

We rented a canal boat for a week and included the CS Canal from the Erie Canal to Seneca Falls. The Lock 2 and 3 combined lift of 49 feet is a pretty cool experience. We want to make this trip again in the fall;...More

We saw some fishermen in the canal and I was not sure if it was the Eire canal or not. Actually, they were locals and did not know either. Well, it is not, it is however a branch. Nice walk further along and we found...More
