Clarence Pathways

Very well maintained

July, 2022 by 2zj98ktwrx

Pros: Trail is in great condition with smooth pavement. Wide enough to pass others. Very well signed. Progress markers along the way with helpful “You are here” designations Nice views of fields and farms. Cons: There are a few busy roads to cross which merit caution. These, again, are very well labeled, and crosswalks are clearly painted. Bonus tip: If heading in the direction of Akron, try stopping at Akron Falls Park. Nice additional biking available there as well, in addition to an opportunity the hop off the two wheeler and take a nice hike by the falls.

Greenway Nature Trail

Away from Everything Yet Right in Town

May, 2022 by natkiser

If you want to treat yourself to a cacophony of natural sounds, come check out this trail. You also get the extra perks of the vast waterways and people watching. Take a little break and enjoy a moment on one of the hammocks (if one is available). It’s the cherry on top!

Ellicott Trail

An Interesting Ride With Lots of Variation

October, 2021 by jgwallis

4 (or 5) stars

On October 28th my wife and I parked in the parking lot of the old Batavia Daily News building, now for lease or sale, at the southwest corner of Industrial Blvd. and Route 33
(Pearl St.) and directly across Industrial Blvd. from the western trailhead.
The trail is as varied as advertised in the TrailLink writeup. It seemed longer than it is as a result of the changes in scenery.
The Ellicott St. section is well signed and safe, but with a traffic level we try to avoid. Directional markers are both above ground and embedded in the sidewalk.
The pleasant, but short section through Elmwood Cemetery was a pleasant contrast to Ellicott St.. We’d never before encountered a rail trail through a cemetery.
The DeWitt Recreation Area, through which the trail travels, is outstanding in its diversity in scenery, side trails and outdoor opportunities.
Near the end of the ride and to lengthen a short ride for us, we took a left at Red Oak Ln. riding through the Oakwood Hills neighborhood, then made a right on Seven Springs Rd. along which we picked up the eastern trail head.
On our return ride, we avoided Ellicott St. by crossing it onto Clifton Ave. from Harvester Ave. and then riding through a residential neighborhood to regain the trail at Evans St.

Erie Canalway Trail

Riding into Utica

September, 2021 by mdaugherty

As you come into Utica, there is a construction area that would benefit from some temporary signs. You ride down a small hill into a wide open area. Once you do this, you will find that there is no sign that should direct riders to go left. Going left will take you across railroad tracks, and to one of the locks. You cross the lock and rejoin the trail. If you make the mistake and take a right instead of going left, you will be forced to ride into Utica on a busy road. Other than needing a sign at this location in Utica, the trail is amazing. We road from Syracuse to Albany.

Clarence Pathways

fun 17+ mile there and back again

September, 2021 by kevinbleigh

Lovely 60 degree morning. Started at Wehrle drive car park then onto the lovely well maintained pathway. Typical road crossings but we’ll marked. The Clarence farmers market was in full swing so stopped and walked my bike through. Then continued on to the Akron end where there was a convenient water bottle filler and bike repair station. The ride back into the wind was a little harder but in the end the ride totaled 17.37 Miles round trip. There is another fork that is 10 plus miles. Will do that one next.

Niagara Scenic Parkway Trail

Wide & smooth with great views

September, 2021 by normanbowers

Trail is smooth and wide with many locations that connect with the wall along the gorge for great views. Trail connects to the falls, Goat Island and a trail that extends 4 miles east from Goat Island along the Niagara River. During busy times consider parking east of the falls along Niagara Scenic Parkway pullouts then bike to the falls.

Niagara Scenic Parkway Trail

a pleasant surprise!

Overall a beautiful trail. Great opportunities to stop with very picturesque views.

Erie Canalway Trail

Bicycled the full trail - as a COVID goal

September, 2021 by david.r.cok

2021: Biked the Erie Canal trail from Buffalo to Cohoes. Well worth the time. And mostly a very pleasant experience, with just a few caveats. Trail improvements are ongoing and signage along the trail is not always up to date, so check your route carefully, especially where it is on-road. The initial section from downtown Buffalo is grungy city streets, but that improves with a great, mostly off-road trail all the way to Lyons. Lockport to Spencerport is fairly exposed, but from there on to Lyons is generally pleasantly green and shaded. From Clyde to Port Byron and through Syracuse were onroad and not always clearly signed and were the least pleasant. From the east side of Syracuse all the way to Cohoes was a delightful and beautiful ride, with the exception of finding one's way onroad and with poor signage through Rome. All in all (despite my caveats) a good, local, human-powered bucket-list endeavor, with thanks to all the communities along the way and everyone maintaining and improving and filling the gaps in the trail.

Great Gorge Railway Trail

My all time favorite trail anywhere. And the stairs at the end of it are a great workout.

Shoreline Trail

needs lots of work

July, 2021 by scott.pillath

There is a section of the trail like others have mentioned going through Niawanda Park that is very beautiful but then a lot of the little connecting trails take you through parts of town that is under construction and the roads are god awful.

Ellicott Creek Trailway

Cute trail with lots of beauty!

July, 2021 by amassa86

A great place to workout in the buffalo area while enjoying the beauty of Mother Nature. The trail is perfect for biking, walking, and even rollerblading. The changes in elevation are slight, but enough to add to the challenge. The trail is faulty lengthy, maybe 6 miles? I ended up picking up another trail that lead to the Erie Canal and up to Lockport. I went in July of 2021 - perfect at 7am. There are several bathroom throughout the trail. There’s tennis courts so bring a racquet! There’s also a golf course. Plenty of parking - free!!

Kiwanis Park Trail

July, 2021 by magpiedrees

Rode it today. 1/2 of it is under construction. It's an easy ride, not a lot of traffic on the paved road. Beautiful scenery, it'll be great when it done.
