Buffalo River Urban Canoe Trail (West Seneca to Buffalo) Professional Review and Guide

"Paddling this waterway gives you a perspective on development that can only be seen from water level. As you paddle toward Buffalo, you’ll pass through three sections designated the Natural River, the Urban River and the Industrial River. My initial impression was, “this is Buffalo?” The trip begins through greenery with only a spattering of residences visible. Then the industrialized portion begins and along with it, your history lesson."

The trail is interesting and taking the trail guide along is deffinitely the way to go. There were just two problems that were really quite serios for this trail - one the trail head off Harlem road is just one slippery mess, it is truly a chore just to stand, not to mention hauling a kayak in and out. My score for slippery falls was three on land and one to my knees just in the waters edge- the other is the opposite end of the trail at the Ohio street ?takeout?the concrete ramp seems to be about twelve feet or so wide at best and would not lend itself well to my seventeen foot kayak, worst of all the ramp was full of debree which apparently had found a home there. I would not recommend this trail without full warnings on the slipperiest mud I've ever seen, and only if the trip was a round trip, not planning on the Ohio St.takeout. I don't know how the oneway time was figured but round trip took us just about four and a half hours, that incuded a snack and stretch stop at the Cazenovia creek.
