Rail Trails #16

I went on a grand tour of Central and Western NY to ride all the remaining trails there: the Verona Beach Rail Trail, the Sylvan Beach Rail Trail, the Black Diamond Trail, the Ridgeway Trail, the Wellsville, Addison, and Galeton (WAG) Trail, the Hinsdale section of the Genesee Valley Greenway, the Corry Junction Rail Trail, The Lancaster Heritage Trail, the Groveland Secondary Trail, and the Genesee River Conservancy Trail.

I have a goal of riding every named Rail-Trail in New York State. Been working on it since June of 2004. There are many more railbeds not used for trains anymore which are also ridable. They are usually unnamed, unsigned, and unpublished. I speculate that this is because the owner is either indifferent or away. I've ridden some of these but I'm more interested in getting the named trails ridden first. I'm uploading them to OpenStreetMap as I go.
