Hiking NY

Description:

Take the NYS Thruway (I-90) to Exit 49, then go north on Transit Road (Rt. 78) and make a right on Main Street (Rt. 5 East).  Make the left to go on Salt Road, in Clarence.  Here you can start at the Clarence-Akron Pathway, a 6.5 mile asphalt surfaced trail used for walking, biking, skiing, rollerblading, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. Maintained by the Clarence Conservation Advisory Council.

The trail connects to other nearby trails that include the Newstead Bike Path (Davison and Clarence Center Road) and the Akron Rail Trail (Cedar Street and Eckerson Av).  There are gates at street crossings, some benches to rest and even a water fountain.

The Peanut Line is a 6 mile trail, with a proposed extension, along an old rail system.  This trail runs parallel to Clarence Center Road, from Meadowlakes Park to Kraus Road.  Trailheads are marked on the streets map below.
