Hunters Creek
Trails Park in the Town of Wales, Erie County.


Western New York Outdoors home

Description:

For hikers and mountain bikers, this park has been a favorite place for several years.  One parking lot is located on Centerline Road and offers access to the trail system.  Look for the trailhead kiosk with master map, rules and regulations.  It will help guide you thru this heavily wooded area.  The gorge near Hunters Creek can be steep at times and the trails are marked with color coding.

There is a second parking area off Hunters Creek Road.  Look for the yellow Public Land signs.  There is a small pond with picnic table here.  From this lot you can hike a couple trails over small streams and one leads to a boardwalk.  If you are adventurous you can hike or bike all the way back to the Centerline Road parking area.
