The Bayfront Connector Trail, also known as the Bayfront Bikeway, offers a paved route across the city of Erie in northwestern Pennsylvania. At its east end is the Penn State Behrend campus; from there, the trail continues downhill following the Bayfront Connector, a four-lane expressway, to Frontier Park on the west end of town.
Along the way, the trail offers an eclectic mix of cityscapes, wooded stretches, and lake views. The Lake Erie Arboretum at Frontier Park, which offers a wealth of educational programming and events, is a highlight of the trip.
Although the pathway ends at Frontier Park, you could continue on the bikeway along Sixth Street to reach Presque Isle State Park, a beautiful peninsula park offering more than 3,000 acres to explore and sandy beaches along Lake Erie.
On the trail’s west end, parking is available at the Intermodal Transportation Center (208 East Bayfront Parkway), Liberty Park (off Lawrence Pier) on the shoreline of Lake Erie, and at Frontier Park (1501 W 6th Street).
