Bike Trail Map/Brochure - (Peanut Line Trail runs from Transit Road to Newstead Town Line. This is approximately 7.5 miles.  Along this path is access to two of our Town Parks - Meadowlakes Park and Memorial Park.  Along the trail are benches and mile markers.  The West Shore Trail runs from Wehrle Drive to Newstead Town Line.  This is approcimately 4 miles.  This path runs through the Clarence Main Street Town Park and also a Town Municipal Parking area and the Clarence Farmers Market (in the summer months).  Benches are also along this trail for resting.  Off of the Peanut Line trail is another path that runs from Heise Road till approximately Roll Road, through the Waterford Subdivision.  Both the Peanut Line and West Shore trails, not only run through some of the Town of Clarence Hamilets, but also connects to the Town of Newstead Trails, allowing you to travel into the Village of Akron).
