Taking A Ride On The Shoreline Trail [PHOTOS]

Shoreline Trail in Tonawanda (photo by Dale Mussen)

For those who have never been here, Western New York really has a lot to offer.  I can’t think of a better way to enjoy a beautiful spring afternoon than taking a bike ride on the Shoreline Trail along the Niagara River thru Niawanda and Isleview Parks in both the City and Town of Tonawanda.  From the terminus of the Erie Canal at the border of Tonawanda and North Tonawanda, the Shoreline Trail will take you all the way to the Peace Bridge.  But I think the nicest section is the one thru the Tonawandas, about 10 miles upstream from Niagara Falls.

That’s what I did Tuesday afternoon to stretch the legs and kill a little time.  And to take a little breather during the jaunt, sometimes I stop at Mississippi Mudd’s or Old Man River’s for a foot long hot dog.  The two restaurants are only a block apart so I always pick the one with the shortest line.  So there I was, hot dog in one hand and soft drink in the other sitting outdoors watching the river and the world go by.  Anytime I have things on my mind it’s a guaranteed way to relax.
