Allegheny River Valley Trail (Allegany/Olean NY)

This past Saturday, August 8th, Bob and I went for a bicycle ride on the Allegheny River Valley Trail.  We began our ride near the tennis courts at St. Bonaventure University in Allegany NY.  Taking the trail to the left, we reached the Allegheny River in about 0.25 mile.

This is a video that Bob took with our GoPro7 camera during our bicycle ride.

I took several still images, while bicycling the trail.

Allegheny River
There are many opportunities along the trail to sit on a bench and enjoy the views of the Allegheny River.
This is one of several bridges that we crossed, while on the trail.

I noticed a big chair sitting alongside the river on the opposite side.

The “Trump Chair”

The trail along the river is well shaded.  The rest of the trail … not so much.

The trail turns away from the river at 3 miles and heads north.

The trail crosses over Washington Street.
This memorial bench and flower garden is located at a curve on trail.

After about a mile, we came to a fork in the trail.  We made a right turn at the fork.

The trail runs alongside Constitution Avenue for a short while.
Country Fair is located at the intersection of Buffalo, Wayne and 12th Streets.

I took this picture inside a pavilion, where we made a rest stop.  We also took advantage of the restroom inside Country Fair.

From Country Fair the trail continues on the sidewalk alongside Wayne Street and turns right alongside a railroad track (opposite Olean Intermediate Middle School).  We turned around shortly after reaching the trail along the railroad track.

This is the pavilion near Country Fair.

We returned to the fork in the trail and turned right to continue on the main loop trail.  After crossing Constitution Avenue we stopped at Twist and Shake.

We stopped for ice cream at Twist and Shake.

We were on the local “Ride for Roswell” trail, but we didn’t participate in the ride.
