The Friends of Chautauqua County Greenways makes plans for active year assisting with rec trails

The Friends of Chautauqua County Greenways (Friends) is preparing for another year of assisting with the building and maintenance of recreational trails in Chautauqua County.

Part of the mission of the Friends group is to solicit volunteers to assist in developing and maintaining county trails in the State Forest Lands.

There are a variety of trails located throughout the county that appeal to hikers, bicyclists, runners, equestrians, cross country skiers, snowshoers, snowmobilers and others.

The recent Chautauqua County Greenways Plan, completed in April of 2013, recommends the formation of such a group for the implementation of the plan, which includes further maintenance of the trails.
