Genesee Valley Greenway Images
Inspired by the Home Page of the Friends of the Genesee Valley Greenway (FOGVG)
The Genesee Valley Greenway runs along the right of way of the Genesee Valley Canal between Rochester and Olean. After the canal was abandoned in 1878, the right of way was used by the Rochester branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad until its abandonment in the 1960s. The Greenway offers a lesson in the history of transportation within New York State from the 1830s. The Friends of the Genesee Valley Greenway (FOGVG)is an organization of volunteers dedicated to the development of the Greenway as a linear park, for walking, bicycling, horseback riding, nature study, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. For more information about the Friends of the Genesee Valley Greenway, follow the link to the FOGVG WWW Site.
Interesting Sites Along the Greenway
