Chautauqua County is blessed with beautiful unused rail corridors winding through picturesque countryside and villages.
In an era preceding paved roads and mechanically reliable cars and trucks, railroads were essential for transportation and for moving agricultural and manufactured goods and supplies through rural areas. In recent decades, railroads have abandoned most of their lines serving rural areas.
Chautauqua Rails-to-Trails is preserving these abandoned rail corridors for conversion into safe off-road trails for recreational use: walking, running, hiking, bicycling, cross country skiing, bird watching (over 170 species identified) and horseback riding.
These trails provide public access through scenic woodlands, wetlands and flowering meadows, offering trail users opportunities to observe the plants, animals and birds found in areas otherwise remote from highways and roads. The trails are available for outdoor recreational activities and environmental study for the public at large and for group outings sponsored by schools, scouts, churches and service organizations.

The first settlement in what is now Chautauqua County, New York, was the "Cross Roads" along the portage trail between Lakes Chautauqua and Erie. What was just a fallow hilltop field five years ago is now a thriving shopping community. Cross Roads Farm & Craft Market is a Co-op of over forty member-owned shops.
Chautauqua has long been known for the quality and creativity of its artists and artisans and Cross Roads has brought many of the finest to this permanent location. Each undergoes a jury process to ensure the quality and diversity of the products offered. At Cross Roads, located between Westfield and Sherman on County Road 21, you'll meet each designer, you'll watch the artisans at work (carving wood spirits, painting, sewing and much more), and you'll be able to commission special works just for you. The 40 or so shops are individually owned and managed by the vendors. These small shops pack a big wallop. The personal, friendly atmosphere delights customers, along with the knowledge, skill and artistry of all the members.
