Genesee Valley Greenway
The Genesee Valley Greenway is one of hundreds of greenways being developed across the nation along old canals, abandoned rail beds, and riverbanks. It passes through scenic woodlands, river and stream valleys, rolling farmlands, steep gorges, and historic villages located in sixteen towns in Monroe, Livingston, Wyoming, Allegany, and Cattaraugus counties in New York State.

Greenway Trail Condition Notes - March 2012
· There is a major washout just south of York Landing (~ mi 24). The detour for the section of Greenway between York Landing and Route 63 is River Road, west of the Greenway. Grant funding to fix this culvert has been approved and repairs are expected in summer 2012.
· The new Greenway Bridge over the Genesee River in Mt. Morris is open and a dedication ceremony is being planned for National Trails day, June 2, 2012.
· Approximately 2000 feet of the Greenway south of Belfast has
been closed due to major erosion along Black Creek. The closed section
is south of Gleason Hill Road between Mile 77 and Mile 78. Orange construction
fencing and "Barrier Ahead" signs have been placed at both ends
of the clos9ed section. Two additional areas of erosion are developing
just south of Rockville Lake. Currently the trail is still open there,
but subject to change if the erosion worsens.
Geocaching on the Greenway
Do you like scavenger hunts? Are you interested in a challenge? If you answer yes, read about Geocaching on the Greenway. This may be an activity that will get your whole family out on the trail. Note that permits are required for placing caches on certain sections of the Greenway since it is now a NYS Park. Check the policies included on this web site under Trail Users.
