Southern Tier Trail

RIDE Details


The multi-use trail will follow the Buffalo-Pittsburgh rail corridor to the greatest extent possible picking up from the Empire State Trail in the City of Buffalo through towns and villages within Erie County through Cattaraugus County to connect to the Genesee Valley Greenway in Cuba. The route crosses through Salamanca and the Seneca Nation of Indians, the Cattaraugus Mountains, and the scenicĀ  1890 Cascade bridge that connects both counties. Sections of the rail corridor able to be used for the multi-use trail are currently under study.

These directions are for planning purposes only. While we make our best effort to keep the maps up to date, you may find that construction projects, traffic weather, or other events may cause conditions to differ from the map and you should adjust your route accordingly.

Bicyclists are traffic and must obey ALL rules of the road. Please refer to our Bike Safety section for additional information on safe riding practices. Though it is the responsibility of both motorists and cyclists to practice safe driving and riding behavior, we strongly encourage cyclists to exercise caution at all times as the more vulnerable road user.
