The Peanut Line Trail runs along a former railroad right-of-way in the Town of Canandaigua. What originated as the Canandaigua & Niagara Falls Railroad was acquired by the New York Central Railroad in 1855 and this grassy path is the only preserved section of this former historic right-of-way in the Town of Canandaigua.
The source of the nickname "Peanut Line Trail" has different versions, but the prevailing story says that a previous vice president of the New York Central Railroad referred it as “only a peanut of a line” after hearing that the workers building the branch line had gone on strike.
