Genesee Valley Greenway

Riding near Letchworth SP

September, 2020 by jimblackjim7

Tried riding the section identified as Trail #7 in the southern section of the park. Probably OK for mountain biking, but not typical rail-Trail. Better luck at the north end at Mount Morris. You can park right at the west side of the river or a little further south in town is a nice access with parking. We rode several miles south from Mount Morris and found it to be a nice easy ride. Mostly packed gravel with some dirt.

Erie Canalway Trail

Amsterdam area

September, 2020 by edpepper99

Trail near Amsterdam is pretty scenic and has potential to be really nice, however, the trail both East and West of Amsterdam was very bumpy in spots with many tree roots pushing thru the old pavement. Some sections need to be repaved.

Lancaster Heritage Trail

straight and flat...

September, 2020 by stephridesbikes

Nice trail for kiddos, but a bit boring for adults. Doesn’t actually lead anywhere so you just kind of shrug and turn around when you get to the end.

Ellicott Creek Trailway

Covid walk

September, 2020 by daltonkev

Took a walk while my daughter was playing hockey. Since we can’t go in to watch I figured I’d take a walk. I didn’t even know this trail was here. Found it by dumb luck. It’s extremely nice, all paved, mower and landscaped. I only went a couple miles but I’ll definitely start doing it all the time.

Tonawanda Rails to Trails

Nice, easy, and well maintained

August, 2020 by derekrmckinnon

This is a great, relatively flat trail for biking, with a nice connection to Lincoln Park near the southern end. There is a gentle slope uphill from the north end to the south end, so when you're riding back north, it's a nice downhill cruise. Very smooth trail and a nice easy ride.

Great afternoon to pack a picnic lunch, start at State St, take a 4 mi ride to Lincoln Park, have lunch, and take a slightly easier ride back north.

Only major road crossing is Sheridan Dr. and it's pretty safe with the crossing lights.

Shoreline Trail

right next to highway

August, 2020 by kapartyka

We thought this trail wasn’t good at all. The trail through niawanda park is great but going towards the city you are biking next to the thruway and takes you into the industrial area of tonawanda, and there is no view of the water. This is a one and done for us.

Pat McGee Trail

Just finished an out and back (Cattaraugus-Salamanca). Nice trail but it was dry when we rode it. If wet it would be dicey. Shady on hot days (88 when we rode). I would recommend it but no road bikes!

Genesee Valley Greenway

Genessee Valley Greenway near Belfast, Cuba and Caneadea

July, 2020 by jfrazier18

Me and my wife TRIED to bike the trail system but several things prevented a good ride. We first parked at the Belfast parking on 153. Found the trail was closed going north to Belfast. Road a few miles on the southbound to Cuba, but not very interesting and the trail is slow due to high grass. Drove over to Caneadea and found the parking on 19, but wow was that scary. Decided not to leave our car. Plus the trail looks not to be maintained. So far our visit to this area has not been very successful.

Greenway Nature Trail

Great ride on a Summer Day!

July, 2020 by kimberslee

Great relaxing ride along the water/boats/land.

Lancaster Heritage Trail

Straight through, flat, pretty

June, 2020 by andrea.j.messineo

Pretty and quiet. Flat surface that is easy to run on. Not very crowded. Not super exciting for photos because it all looks the same. It is straight through so it is definitely a good trail if you want to run without being diverted due to closures or accidentally getting off track. I didn't see any wildlife out of the ordinary birds and squirrels.

Niagara Gorge Rim Trail

trail extends into Lewiston

June, 2020 by frank.frandina

The trail has been extended into Lewiston with fantastic views of the lower river to Lake Ontario. The new section of the trail starts at 9th and Seneca and is a not too steep climb up the escarpment. Once at the top, the trail is on the old Robert Moses Pkwy pavement and over the dam to Devils Hole with many rough pavement joints.
