Springville Pop Warner Rail Trail Description

The Village of Springville in Western New York is home to the first section of the proposed 27-mile Erie Cattaraugus Rail Trail. Running 1.8 miles from the northern border to the southern border of the town, the Pop Warner Rail Trail is the first fully developed and opened section of this impressive project. It is a multiuse trail, with asphalt millings on its surface, and is open to a range of non-motorized uses. The trail south of the West Main Street trailhead (227 West Main Street) is an out-and-back trail, because the trail's end at the southern town limits is not accessible from the neighboring streets.

The trail lies on the abandoned Buffalo & Pittsburgh Railroad right-of-way. Aside from recreation and transportation, the trail also helps to maintain the historical significance of the railroad corridor. The Erie Cattaraugus Rail Trail will stretch along this railbed beginning in Orchard Park and terminating in Town of Ashford, taking one through the charming communities and spectacular vistas of Western New York.

Parking and Trail Access

The main access point is the West Main Street Trail Head (227 West Main Street) which sits across from the Historic Railroad Depot in Springville.

Springville Pop Warner Rail Trail Reviews

Thank you for opening up for Snowmobiles

Utilized the trail for first time on my snowmobile. I am very grateful for the cooperation between the rails to trails group and local snowmobile clubs who I was told funded and built the nice new bridge decking over the old rail bridges? If I am wrong, then I apologize. Just want to say to my fellow snowmobile riders to please be respectful about others who use the trails to hike and ski etc.

I love this trail!

I ride this trail quite frequently, and it is well maintained; however, the trail could very well benefit from the addition of one or three benches.

Not for Cross Country Skiers

This is a beautiful trail, very well groomed and serene surroundings. If the rating was for those issues, I would give it a 5 star, HOWEVER, if you wish to use it for cross country skiing, you will be assaulted w/ the sounds, smells and close encounters w/ snowmobiles, and, if my experience on Sunday is any indicator, many of them. This greatly compromises the experience if you are hoping for a quiet, fresh air commune w/ nature type of skiing. I definitely will not be going back. Please understand, I am not dissing snowmobiles, just saying they are incompatible w/ Xcountry skiing, at least on this trail,
