O&W Railroad Pedestrian Promenade and Bikeway Description

This unique in-city trail was built on portions of the former Ontario and Western Railway Line through the City of Oswego. The Ontario and Western Railway ran its last train in March of 1957. The trail passes through a short tunnel, which was used by the now defunct railroad.

Plans call for extending the trail along more of the abandoned right-of-way in the near future. The pedestrian promenade and bikeway is a joint project between the city and the county utilizing the former O&W Railroad tunnel.

Parking and Trail Access

There is no dedicated trail user parking. Please park legally on local streets adjacent to the many trail access points.
