Shoreline Trail Detour: Follow This Route!

While Ralph Wilson Park is under construction, there will be a detour for the Shoreline Trail. We anticipate the detour will be in effect for the duration of construction – through Q3 2025. The Gilbane construction team will be posting signage to direct cyclists soon.

In partnership with GoBike Buffalo, we have recommended the following detour routes:

For cyclists going south along the Niagara Street Cycle Track:

  • Continue along the Shoreline Trail until Porter
  • Turn east on Porter
  • Turn south on Busti
  • Turn East on Hudson
  • Turn south on Niagara


  • Continue south onto Busti 
  • Turn East on Hudson
  • Turn South on Niagara

For cyclists going north on Niagara Street from downtown:

  • Turn West on Hudson
  • Turn North on 7th Street
  • Turn West on Porter
  • Turn North onto the Shoreline Trail


  • Turn West on Hudson
  • Turn North on 7th Street
  • Stay on 7th as it becomes Columbus Parkway @ Porter
  • Turn East on Massachusetts
  • Turn North on Niagara 
  • Mount bike lane on curb @ Hampshire
  • Use traffic light to cross Niagara and re-enter Niagara Street Cycle Track

The Shoreline Trail runs from Buffalo Harbor State Park north through downtown Buffalo to North Buffalo, Tonawanda, and beyond.
