The Oswego begins its current journey north at mile marker 160 at the point that is known best as Three Rivers. The current canal was opened in 1917 to correspond with the modern-day route and heads north to Lake Ontario. The Canal is 24’ miles long and has 7 locks. Most travelers on the Canal today are heading for points north in Canada or headed to the Great Lakes, but slow down a bit and take some time to visit the communities along the Oswego. At mile 2 stop at the village of Phoenix. You will more than likely be visited by one of the members of the bridge house brats, a volunteer youth group that will help you enjoy your stay by delivering meals, ice, and supplies. Continue to Fulton, Minetto, and finally Oswego home of Harbor fest, one of the largest celebrations held along the entire canal towards the end of July each year.
