Kiwanis Park Trail Reviews

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.

The trail provides a great peaceful, scenic adventure through the natural greenspace along the Robert Moses and around Lower River Road.
However, its condition has deteriorated over the years and has several unsafe locations if roller blading or biking.
Are there any future plans to update?
