Trail along levee in Binghamton

A bicyclist rides on a trail near the confluence of the Susquehanna and Chenango Rivers in Binghamton, NY. Binghamton has built trails along many of their levees, giving walkers and cyclists a level, intersection-free route by the river. Levees, rail lines, and utility corridors all offer opportunities for trails to supplement the street and sidewalk system.
