The bike/walk trail is directly across from our house and it has provided safe, and relaxing activity for our family for years. The canalway provides all forms of outdoor recreation including jogging, biking, walking, boating etc.etc.etc.

The trail is partially on paths and roads. The roads don't always have good shoulders so we usually stick to the sections with better roads. The trail can be almost deserted in spots so it is important to be careful of your surroundings and use in pairs.

Paved and dirt trails so you can use a wheel chair in many places. Clean and very safe feeling; the views of the river are nice and there is places you can walk into to sit and watch nature.

This is part of a series of bike paths (also walking paths) that go from downtown Buffalo to the end of this trail at New Road. The paths aren't all connected, but are reachable with relatively very little biking on little used roads. This section goes along Tonawanda Creek and the Erie Barge Canal. It's a pleasant bike ride, or... More
