Open Space Planning:
Allegany County is in the western region of New York State for Open Space Planning. We participate in the plan that is developed by the state on a regular basis. See the plan HERE
Another Plan that is relevant on a statewide basis is: The New York State Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan
and finally there is also a Statewide Trails Plan, which we are part of.
NYSDEC maintains more than 50,000 acres of State Forest and Wildlife Management Areas within Allegany County. Their website is an excellent resource for reviewing each of the state forests within our County. The DEC also oversees part of the former WAG Trail south of Wellsville that extends to the PA border.
Allegany County maintains over 2,000 acres of County forests. The Soil & Water Conservation District is the group that maintains these resources.
Finger Lakes Trail - This trail is connected to the North Country Trail and makes it one of the longest hiking trails in the country. The trail crosses the northern part of the County and is a purely hiking trail.
Genesee Valley Greenway - This Greenway follows the old Genesee Valley Canal line from Cuba, NY northeast through the County until it exits into Letchworth State Park and continues north to Rochester, NY. The greenway is owned now by NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. There is also a group that helps maintain the Greenway - Friends of the GVG.
Allegany Trails - is a small group of people interested in creating more trails within Allegany County. Presently they control about 1 mile of the old WAG Trail - now renamed the Upper Genesee River Trail from Wellsville's Island Park south to Weidrick Road.
Genesee River Wilds Inc. is a small Not for Profit group that is working to assist other groups with their projects and bring new project on-line. Primary focus during 2012 is to bring two pocket parks on-line for canoe and Kayak access onto the Genesee River at Transit Bridge and Belfast bridge.
Fishing resources in Cuba Lake, Rushford Lake and the small lakes and ponds are plentiful. NYSDEC stocks many of the streams and lakes annually. Allegany County is a perennial top five deer hunting county in New York State for both deer per square mile and bucks per square mile. Black Bear, and Turkey are also popular hunting sports in county.
Virtually every Town and Village in the County maintains at least one park within it's boundaries. Many of these include playing fields for soccer, baseball, softball and similar team sports while also having picnic areas and playgrounds in some of them. Some have pavilions for use by larger parties. Contact a particular Town or Village to see what they offer.
See Chapter III of the 2013 Allegany County Comprehensive Plan for a chart of many of the resources available within Allegany County.
