The Overland Trails are a great way to get outside and adventure through the diverse ecosystems in Chautauqua County. The Westside and Eastside combine to give you over 40 miles of trails to explore, each with unique points of interests, wildlife, scenery, and varying difficulty levels. This makes them an ideal recreational destination for all ages and experience levels. While you’re hiking keep a look out for our trail markers to make sure you’re on the right path and learn about some of the unique destinations, wildlife, forests, and more!
Take a short hike to a tranquil pond and grill up some lunch, or pack up your tent and tackle the whole trail system! The multiple trailheads and parking locations make it easy for you to decide your own adventure. Just remember to pack appropriately, clean up after yourself, and bring adequate amounts of water and food. Remember, if you carry it in, you carry it out! There’s no worse harm to our environment then leaving behind trash and/or used items. So grab your friends and family and take a relaxing trip out on the trails. Experience outdoor adventure for yourself!
