From Orchard Park northward into Buffalo you will experience urban riding conditions so ride defensivly. A nicely paved but poorly signed bike path extends from the Buffalo Naval Park to the Peace Bridge, which takes you into Canada. The Peace Bridge is an easy crossing, and the route continues on a bike path along the Niagara River. You'll pass Niagara Falls, then cross back into the U.S. At Lockport, the route follows 90 miles of the Erie Canalway Trail before heading toward Lake Ontario. The route then heads east into the Adirondack Mountains. The terrain is hilly and passes many lakes and tourist spots. The endpoint is Ticonderoga which is located right on the Hudson River.

This is a well laid out route and uses a good choice of road.
