Lehigh Trail - A Great Place to Walk

Lehigh Trail - A Great Place to Walk

The old railroad path known as Lehigh trail is a great place for walking, like I do with my dog, Major Mo. Four or five times a week, you'll find us walking down cayuga to the start of the trail (path) that goes to the old train depot. Then you get a nice 50+ degree 1st day of spring like today and you'll find 50 or so people, walking, jogging and rollarblading on it.

If you get a chance this spring, go to the Lehigh trail and take a walk on the beautiful path. You'll find the cross-section of the people of Williamsville enjoying one of the secret places of the village.
