Recreational Trail

Our town board recently passed a memorandum in support of the Rails-to-Trails project in West Falls and is actively working with this community organization to ensure that the full community benefits from this project. Town representatives have also met with GoBike members to explore options of improving biking connections with a goal of connecting the new multi-purpose trail & the Hamlet of West Falls to the Village of East Aurora. 


Erie Cattaraugus Rail Trail (ECRT) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization that serves as trail manager for a 27-mile recreational trail built on the Buffalo-Pittsburgh (BPRR) rail line extending through and connecting to five municipalities in Buffalo’s south towns, including the Hamlet of West Falls. The ECRT trail system will be a vital, significant community connector. It will link business, cultural, and recreational amenities to each other and to communities north and south of West Falls, encouraging increased visitor frequency and safe access to these assets. It will also provide West Falls residents with an easily accessible, ADA compliant recreational resource. With NY Forward support for the development of the 3.1 mile section of the ECRT trail, West Falls will become a stronger, healthier, more economically vibrant community. ECRT will continue to be a significant economic generator well into the future.
