The Oswego County Trail follows an abandoned right-of-way of the old New York Ontario & Western Railroad between Cleveland and Fulton. The trail passes among scenic countryside on a sometimes rough...

I have walked from Griegsville to just shy of East Bethany. I appreciated the fact that the railroad bridges were kept in good shape for walkers. Loved crossing the Oatka Creek and other creeks on the trail. It is a shame that the rocks (ballast) were not properly removed. The places this trail goes are truly lovely. Livingston County especially. I agree with the other commenter that it seems the only people that go on the Groveland Secondary are the very folks that aren't supposed to: ATVers. I stuck with it because I can't resist a trail, and like the places it goes. If the rocks were removed I would give it a high rating. I wonder what would it take to get this trail improved.
What a great way to get off the road and get on some crushed limestone. Watch that hole in the middle of the trail somewhere around half way.
If it is hot, take a dip in the canal, mmmmmmm... swamp!
Way exceeded my expectations! A very beautiful ride. Well maintained. And the free pumpkins along the way we’re a very nice touch. My only complaint is the lack of parking at the end of the trail near Horseheads. Can’t wait to go again. Thank you for everyone’s hard work in making this trail possible.
Yesterday we rode on the trail. The surface is very good, There are minimal elevational changes. I wish a couple of trailhead maps were posted for the Rush end of the trail. Mileage signage is excellent.
This is clearly a trail well kept and loved by folks who work hard on it. Bravo for their dedication!
Really a beautiful trail for a sunny October day. We saw a good number of other bikers, dogwalkers, walkers and runners. Everyone shared the trail politely. I see there is a "power trail" of Geocaches along its length as well, but it did not seem disruptive.
The name “Black Diamond” comes from the old railroad on which this trail resides. It is an amazing engineering feat how this trail provides a steady (easy) grade all the way up to the top of Taughannock Falls from lake level. The surface is crushed stone and the entire length is well maintained. It is a real delight (even on a hot day) due to the shade provided by the hillside trees. The trail goes North along the East side of the hill. There are several (8?) road crossings along the way that are well marked, although there is little road traffic.
About 5 miles of newly paved trail has been open east of Amsterdam to Pattersonville. It is a really nice ride along the river.
Great trail. Flat, easy to ride - crosses a few roads but overall pleasant. Direction Correction: The directions say that after taking a left on Phillips Road to go about a mile. Instead go .4 miles for the Auburn Trail and then .5 for the Lehigh Valley Trail.
Exactly my cup of tea, wild nature feeling, no people, semi-maintained and you can let your dog off leash. Right in the middle of town!
I have been to similar trails around - Auburn Trail and Lehigh Track Trail and it is perfect for relaxing and getting some steps under your belt.
After the August storms, the middle 4-mile section is closed. You can work around it on 14 and jump back on, but better to call and check first. The first and last sections were great and I hope to be back when the trail reopens.
Fantastic bike ride. The bridge is out near the end at Penn Yan, but you can work around it on the streets and jump back on the trail on the other side. Great recommendation.
Riding the ballast on these old rail beds is real exercise! Goes on and on....
We arrived from Chicago and did a twilight ride of this trail. We started out in Rochester at the big falls. We found that the trail once found was very nice however signage we though was very confusing and could be better for the non locals. Great scenery of a trail that offers so much. We unfortunately only made it to Maple Park before the sun was setting. Better information in my opinion is needed for this trail.
