Paved path, however, very narrow. Only 3 miles of it is a path the rest is a street. A little disappointed.
just poured for hours last night and the trail was paved the whole way to the fort. easy riding not alot of traffic early in the morning.
My favorite section of the Erie Canal is when I bike from Tow path in Pittsford to Long Pond in Greece where the gravel begins. The whole trail is asphalt and it's really smooth. It's a good 30 miles I would say.
Rode yesterday with a friend for the first time in 20 years. Trail is paved throughout and starts on Kenmore Avenue in Buffalo to Younge Street in North Tonawanda. Codes several major roads and predominantly crosses built up neighborhoods. Very Safe and moderately populated trail.
If you’re a local this starts on N forest by Maple. Will take you all the out to Niagara Falls Blvd, right across from Elliott Creek Park as one of its branches. Cross the street and on either side of the creek you can take right down to the Niagara River¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿
Free parking can be found at a small park in Rennseller with toilets nearby,
Follow the RT 5 & 9 signs to the ped. bridge over the river which takes you directly onto the path. There are signs for the Mohawk / Hudson Bikeway.
The map is out of print but online. You will need to get off trail and ride on road for 4 miles before connection to the pathway. Side street at blue kiosk will take you to Cohos Falls (food nearby). About 12 miles to Falls.
My sons live near this and took me. It was a great ride during the pandemic to get a break from being indoors. Very well planned.
As a dog runner, I have been on most of the local paths. I avoid this one whenever possible. It is way too narrow with little room to pull my dog off to the side when other dogs are approaching. There’s also a lot of dog poop not picked up along the edges, which is ridiculous since they provide bags.
Buffalo can get a bad rap, but this is nice trail along the shoreline and then into town. We did it Labor Day on a perfect day and could not believe how nice Buffalo has been upgraded. Obviously you got to catch good weather which can be a challenge there, but was worth the ride.
This awesome trail starts at the tennis courts inside a subdivision. It is a little hard to find but so worth it. The beginning of the path is like taking a hike through the words (but with asphalt). It is so beautiful. You do have to cross some street then and the path takes you over by the gorge. The path is curvy and goes by lovely houses. At some points you have to go into the street by Youngstown. At that point you can ride into Ft. Niagara and enjoy the park. This is such a lovely ride and not very busy.
Rode one way approx 7 miles starting in Amsterdam. While pedaling under the thruway overpass, it smelled like feces/urine. This area has an abandoned building and an adjacent overgrown wareyard with debris piles, junk and very weedy. Approx 1/3 mile past the overpass we stopped to look at map and weather app (the clouds were looking ominous) and I see a large man riding toward us (up until that point we saw no-one else on the trail). As he passed us grunting and snarling at us, I noticed he was filthy with dirty hair and face. He rode past us and less than 30 seconds later when I looked down the trail, he had disappeared into the brush (this is a straightaway section - you can see a long way). We turned around and within 10 minutes the downpour was upon us. We were soaked when we arrived back in am-dam.
My advice: do not pedal this section by the overpass alone. This man had no good reason to pursue us, then growl/grunt when passing us and then disappear back into the brush. If I had been solo riding, I can only speculate on a different outcome. He is living under/by the overpass. We apparently pedaled thru his "area".
My wife and I visited Buffalo from our home town 2.5 hours away on Sep. 1, 2019 with the primary purpose of riding this trail. I can't say the ride was worth the car trip. We started at the northern end of the trail in Tonawanda . For the first few miles, it went right along the Niagara River, with beautiful views. Then it moved inland and went through an industrial area, but it was still interesting, at least to an engineer like me. At Sheridan Dr, we encountered the first disappointment. A sign said the trail was closed ahead. We checked, and it was indeed definitely closed off with a chain link fence. One small sign indicated a detour, but it seemed to point to the entrance ramp of I-190, where another sign said bicycles forbidden, as expected! Fortunately, a local cyclist passing by pointed us to the correct detour on River Rd, which was quite unattractive. Shortly after returning to the trail via an overpass over I-190, another closure sent us again on inland streets. Finally, we came up to a third closure on Niagara St. just before Unity Island. This time, there was not even a sign indicating a detour. We had had enough with the closures and the ugly city streets, so we just turned around and rode back to our starting point. This will be a much better trail when the closures are eliminated, and it would be a 5-start trail if more of it went along the river. The real gem would be extending it north to the Falls, which at present, can only be reached via a maize of city streets. (We tried, but got lost and gave up.)
