The next-to-last day of Cycling the Erie Canal might have been called Native American day. The ride started in Canajoharie, a Mohawk word describing a feature of the Canajoharie Gorge. Much of the day's cycling was back on the Erie Canalway trail system, which for part of this stretch stayed near the Mohawk River. The recreation path went in and out of pleasant forested areas, giving glimpses of the Mohawk all along the way.A short detour off the path led to a Jesuit Shrine to Mohawk martyrs.
