    If boating is not for you, or even if it is, you can also enjoy the canal by taking a hike along the towpath. Karen and I enjoyed a walk on the path with our daughter, Laura, and found it a thoroughly interesting and enjoyable experience. Bicycles and rollerblades are also allowed. The path is level, scenic, and historic.

    The towpath through Fairport is part of the 100-mile Erie Canal Heritage Trail. It connects with the New York State Canalway Trail System, comprised of a network of more than 260 miles of existing multi-use, recreational trails across upstate New York.

    Island Valley Golf Course

    by davecallahan Updated Jun 9, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is an easy, wide-open 9-hole course made just for duffers like me. You can whack the ball and squirt it to the right without getting into much trouble (you may land in another fairway but that's not too bad). The course plays 2400 yards to 3200 yards depending on tee selection.
    You can play a round in little over an hour.
    There are minimum hazards; streams are peripheral on some holes. The rough is not any fun because it is quite deep. The greens are pretty flat but run fast in the summer heat.

    There aren't much in facilities here. It is just a friendly family-owned field aka golf course.
    $16 gets you a round and a cart.

    So come on out and punch a few balls down the fairway.
