Opened in 2016, Tonawanda Rails to Trails offers a paved linear route through the Tonawanda community north of Buffalo. The rail-trail was built atop the former Erie Lackawanna Railway, which carried both freight and passengers in the 1880s. The pathway runs through a mix of residential and commercial areas and links several schools and parks.
At the trail's southern end, it connects to the North Buffalo Rails to Trails, another paved route which provides easy access to the LaSalle Metro Rail Station.
One day, the trail will stretch farther north to connect with the vast Erie Canalway Trail, which stretches nearly 300 miles across New York.
Parking is available near the north end of the trail in Ives Park (2 Frances St.) and at Walter M. Kenney Field (2000 Colvin Blvd.). Mid-Trail, parking can be found at Lincoln Park (1200 Parker Blvd.).
TrailLink is a free service provided by Rails-to-Trails conservancy
(a non-profit) and we need your support!
