The first mile of the nearly 12-mile planned Oneida Rail Trail opened in September 2014 between Hubbard Place and Lenox Avenue on the west side of Oneida. The trail runs through woodlands on an old corridor once used by the New York Central’s West Shore Railroad. A sign at the Hubbard Place trailhead celebrates the segment’s status as the first component of the future expansive network.
Another half-mile segment, disconnected from the trail's first mile, opened in 2016. It runs between Seneca Street and Sayles Street and passes Oneida High School on the way.
When complete, the rail-trail system will use three former railroad corridors to provide access to much of the community, as well as a connection to the existing Erie Canalway Trail. A roughly 6-mile loop via the bisecting corridors will also provide a popular recreation route around the city.
Parking for the Oneida Rail Trail is available at the western trailhead on Hubbard Place. From downtown Oneida, take Lenox Avenue/State Route 365A southwest to Genesee Street/SR 5 and turn right. Then take the first right onto Hubbard Place. The trailhead is located just south of W. Elm Street.
