Friends of Chautauqua Greenways

coalition of users and county residents supporting the Chautauqua County Greenways Plan and its initiatives

The Friends of Chautauqua County Greenways is a group of volunteers who share a common interest: To preserve and promote the natural assets of the County. This group represents the interests of hikers, bikers, kayakers, bird watchers, fishermen, snowmobilers, birders, cross-country skiers, environmentalists, and many other stakeholders who share a common vision, as defined by the recently-completed Chautauqua County Greenway Plan, to help "establish Chautauqua County as a four season destination for outdoor living, nurtured by public/private partnerships." Our membership, still in its infancy, is becoming involved with hands-on projects that serve to manage and maintain our current assets, while looking to the future to create more opportunities to fulfill our mission.

Get ready for trail work....  check out this powerpoint  and read the trail day tips.  Of course these two items are only meant to give you some brief information, but it's a good place to start. If you are interested in getting involved be sure to sign up to be a member, and check back here as the snow begins to melt


April 2014, FCCG has a stewardship agreement with the DEC to aid in trail work on State Forest Land. if you are interested in being involved email twrighthere@gmail.com.  We will be coordinating our efforts with Bart from the County Parks Dept, in order to better use the resources we have.  The Equestrian trails will be continuing to grow up in the Boutwell Hill Area, and Harris Hill Ext. is continuing to add more loops to the 12 miles it already has.
