That would be so cool if it was a hike & bike trail that you could camp along.

It already is. See: http://www.nyscanals.gov/exvac/trail/campsites.html

Unfortunately, the trail isn't complete across New York state, but every year it gets closer. The plan is to have it be a continuous trail from Buffalo to Albany in the next few years.

I've ridden it from Rochester to Macedon, and I ride the section from Rochester to Pittsford daily as part of my commute.
