One of the implementation strategies for scenic conservation issues along the Byway is volunteer effort. Adopt a roadside is one of these volunteer efforts. But Kyle Donahue demonstrated another possibility at the Dunsbach Ferry site as he completed his Eagle Scout Project. The site is at the intersection of Clamsteam Road and Canal Road in Halfmoon.
For the most in depth experience on the Mohawk Towpath Byway, you have to slow down and take "it" one step at a time. I have long advocated that the best way to see the Byway is on a bicycle. Well, that's close. But to really see the detail I now suggest you get off your bike and discover some of the real beauty, charming nooks, bits of history, and capricious nature. There's over 26 miles to the Byway that pass through more than a dozen communities, several geologies, and innumerable stories.
