Bike Path Information


The Akron-Newstead bike path provides a safe, scenic setting for bicycles, rollerblading, walking and running. The path begins in the Village of Akron at the intersection of Cedar St(Rt. 93) and Eckerson Avenue. It runs approximately 4.6 miles southwest along the old Westshore railroad line and passes through Jackson St, Hake Rd, Clarence Center Rd, Barnum Rd, and Davison Rd, continuing on into Clarence to Salt Rd. The Peanut line section of the bike path begins between Clarence Center Rd and Barnum Rd and runs northwest approximately 2.2 miles where it connects to the Clarence section of the path. At each of the road junctions there are warning gates, signage indicating where you are located along the path, and benches to stop for a rest along your journey. At the Jackson St junction there is a water fountain. No ATV's or snowmobiles are allowed directly on the bike path. If you travel the path with a pet, we ask that you please clean up any messes they may create.
