Williamsburg to Batavia Hike/Bike Trail
This 6- mile paved trail is the perfect opportunity for runners, walkers, skaters or cyclists to enjoy the outdoors and connect with their communities. This diverse trail includes flat sections, as well as rolling hills and inclines. It shares the road with vehicles in some spots and winds through abandoned roadways originally created during the construction of East Fork State Park.
It is a collaborative effort that was realized when several agencies came (see below) came together to design a bike path that would encourage recreation, connectivity for the region, and an opportunity for economic growth.
