According to WIVB, an 80-mile trail that would connect downtown Buffalo to the southern tier is now in the works.

The trail would start in Buffalo and extend to the Town of Hinsdale in Cattaraugus County.

The project is estimated to cost $100 and $110 million.

GObike and Alta Planning and Design are joining forces to make this trail happen and the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation has pledged to support the trail project.

Among the towns connected by the trail would be Orchard Park, Springville, Ellicottville, and Salamanca.

The hope is to begin construction within the next five years.

This sounds awesome. What a great idea!
