Trails maintained by BHSC on behalf of the DEC are multi-use, non-motorized and open to cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, fat biking, etc. Located on the “Chautauqua Ridge,” lake-effect snow capital of WNY, the five miles of non-motorized trails we groom, as well as adjoining multi-use town and forest roads groomed by the Cherry Creek Sno-Goers snowmobile club and back country trails galore, make up an amazing winter playground that is free and open to the public.
