Little Falls celebrated the officially completion of the one-mile segment of the Erie Canal trail on Tuesday.
Little Falls City Mayor Robert Peters along with state Canal Corporation Director Brian Stratton and several state and local officials cut a ribbon to celebrate the completion of a one-mile of the trail off of state Route 167 in Little Falls.
The section helps connect 40 continuous miles of the trail from the city to Amsterdam in Montgomery County. This completed section marks more than 75 percent completion of the trail, with about 60 miles of trail left to finish.
It is part of 10 miles of trail the Canal Corp. has been working on to help close the gaps in the 348-mile Erie Canal trail.
Stratton said the Canal Corp. is making the completion a priority, and the 10 miles currently being worked on is expected to be completed by 2015.
