Parked at Clarence Town Park on Rt 5 in Clarence. Nicest public park restrooms I have ever seen. Thank you!!! Rode NE on the West Shore trail to the end in Akron. Wide open rural area with very little shade. Took a right on Cedar, left on Main, and right on Parkview. Probably about 2 miles on road. Food available in Akron. Very little traffic on a weekday evening. Think I was passed by only 5 cars. Gentle grades and the steepest one was a downhill on Parkview. Stretch along 93 is only a couple hundred feet on a sidewalk.
Rode NW on Peanut Line to end in East Amherst. Narrower than West Shore with some shade. Clarence Center to East Amherst had several easy street crossings and lots of walkers and dogs.
Rode back SE to Strickler Rd and headed S for about 3 miles. Fairly quiet country road. Only passed by about a dozen cars. All were very nice and gave me plenty of room. One even waited for oncoming car to clear before passing. Had a slight uphill grade to Rt 5.
Rode to the SW end of the West Shore trail. This was my favorite part. Well shaded through wetlands. I suspect it might be mosquito heaven certain times of the year.
Headed back NE to my starting spot at the park. Odometer showed 31 miles. Nothing exciting scenery-wise, but well maintained trails with great signs and milemarkers every .2 miles. Thanks.....bikin-Mike May 2021
One of our favorites! Paved.
Wide trail, very active but nice ride from North Buffalo to the river!
Great asphalt trail. A lot of signage to explain where you are. Numerous benches for rest stops. A nice eatery at the end of trail in Clarence Center.
Great trail for a run through nature. Well maintained asphalt path. Plenty of parking.
The last week of February we had a warm up and some of the lake had started to thaw. Most of the foot of snow had been melted off. Always great to see different weather changes on the Peninsula.
A few mile section of this trail has been snowplowed providing the opportunity to take in a Winter ride. Though the temp was a mere 20 degrees, the sun was out and there was barely any wind. The lake and bay had just frozen this early in February. It does not freeze every year. Also ice dunes had formed on the Lake (Lake Erie) side of the Peninsula. Ice dunes do not occur every year. The section of the trail which was plowed was at the State Park entrance and out a few miles. Still able to get in a decent ride and enjoy a beautiful Winter in the park via bicycle.
This is a beautiful trail, very well groomed and serene surroundings. If the rating was for those issues, I would give it a 5 star, HOWEVER, if you wish to use it for cross country skiing, you will be assaulted w/ the sounds, smells and close encounters w/ snowmobiles, and, if my experience on Sunday is any indicator, many of them. This greatly compromises the experience if you are hoping for a quiet, fresh air commune w/ nature type of skiing. I definitely will not be going back. Please understand, I am not dissing snowmobiles, just saying they are incompatible w/ Xcountry skiing, at least on this trail,
New off road section was created along Broadway in Albany after coming out of the tunnel. Watch for the signs for the Empire Trail also
We accessed the trail at McCrea Point Park and walked along the Chadakoin River. We saw some ducks in one of the streams off the trail and a deer crossing the stream. Nice parking area next to the scrap recycling plant. A great trail to safely walk on around Jamestown. Not real quiet due to the machinery at the scrapyard. Trail is flat and in good paved condition. We went out a few miles and turned around.
Lovely Fall day. We hiked the Ralph Sheldon section from Titus Road and the Nancy Diggs section from Hannum Road. Trail is dirt and gravel and basically a flat rail trail. We saw some other hikers/walkers and a few cyclists. A very nice trial if you want to get on it and walk and walk! Some sections of the trail were covered with leaves.
Started at the Thayer Road parking lot, and went 7 miles out and back. It was a nice gradual uphill ride through mostly a carpet of leaves. Riding a fat tired bike with 26x4.0 wheels, so some muddy spots were ok. I would recommend at least a mountain bike. The ride was a complete joy and I look forward to a longer ride.
