Saturday, May 3
More than 80 state parks and historic sites are participating in the third annual Parks & Trails NY and New York State Parks I Love My Park Day on Saturday, May 3rd. Join your friends, family and neighbors and sign up today to volunteer at one of the three Genesee Valley Greenway State Park work sites. See details on this event here
Register today! will take you to registration on the PTNY website where you can choose to volunteer at Brook Road in Chili, at the Leicester-Mt. Morris pocket park, or on the GVG in Cuba. Whether you want to cut brush, weed flowerbeds, spread mulch, build picnic tables, or perhaps paint – there is a job for you helping to spruce up the Genesee Valley Greenway for the summer season.
Make a difference on the Genesee Valley Greenway, and register today to volunteer on May 3rd! Registering in advance avoids the need to complete the Volunteer Service form and Photo Release Form on May 3. This also allows us to plan for T-shirts and refreshments (compliments of Wegmans).

The Management Plan for the GVG State Park was completed in December 2013 and is available at http://www.nysparks.com/inside-our-agency/master-plans.aspx.
The Genesee Valley Greenway is one of hundreds of greenways being developed across the nation along old canals, abandoned rail beds, and riverbanks. It passes through scenic woodlands, river and stream valleys, rolling farmlands, steep gorges, and historic villages located in sixteen towns in Monroe, Livingston, Wyoming, Allegany, and Cattaraugus counties in New York State.
Greenway Trail Condition Notes - March 2014
There is a major washout just south of York Landing (~ mi 24). The trail has been temporarily re-routed around the wash out. Grant funding to fix this culvert has been approved and repairs are expected in 2014. During the culvert repair, the detour for thie section of Greenway between York Landing and Route 63 is River Road, west of the Greenway. Grant funding to fix this culvert has been approved and repairs are expected in 2014.
Approximately 2000 feet of the Greenway south of Belfast has been closed due to major erosion along Black Creek. The closed section is south of Gleason Hill Road between Mile 77 and Mile 78. Orange construction fencing and "Barrier Ahead" signs have been placed at both ends of the clos9ed section. Two additional areas of erosion are developing just south of Rockville Lake. Currently the trail is still open there, but subject to change if the erosion worsens.
Geocaching on the Greenway
Do you like scavenger hunts? Are you interested in a challenge? If you answer yes, read about Geocaching on the Greenway. This may be an activity that will get your whole family out on the trail. Note that permits are required for placing caches on certain sections of the Greenway since it is now a NYS Park. Check the policies included on this web site under Trail Users.
