Day 7 - Weedsport to Camillus 20ish miles

This segment was mostly on stone dust trails. A great short ride. Historically it was all about "aqueducts" which took the Erie Canal OVER streams and rivers. In Jordan, NY we found a great artists mural on a wall in the town of the Jordan Aqueduct. Then it was on to Camillus, the half-way point of the original Erie Canal. A short stop at Sim's Store and then on to the fully restored 9 Mile Creek Aqueduct. On certain days, in season, you can actually take a boat ride that will take you over the 9 Mile Creek on this restored aqueduct. It is part of the Camillus Erie Canal Park at the end of your day's ride. Explore the aqueduct and then go back and spend some time at the restored Sim's Store.
