  Allegheny Mountains ?
  Posted by: Mattt on Feb-14-11 3:25 PM (EST)

I can see you geting upriver to Pittsburgh, but getting up the Allegheny all the way would be probalmatic as it starts in the Allegheny mountains, I think. Even if you got up to the headwaters, its still a long way to get over to the Hudson. Mohawk isn't any help to you - it comes down out of the North (above Rome) and runs into the NYS Barge Canal - hiting the canal anywhere will take you to Albany on the Hudson. Up the Allegheny and cross over to the West Branch of the Susquehana might work, then upstream to its source at Otsego L near Cooperstown NY , if you could get a shuttle ride - from there to the Barge Canal, your homefree. at least that works "on paper" might be you can find some other canal systems in PA that would take you to the Susq. - once on the Susq, you could go North, or turn downstream and take it to Atlantic via Chesapeake
