The Oneida Rail Trail is a planned trail system of three interconnecting rail beds creating a loop around the city. Three abandoned rail beds, the NY Central RR, West Shore Division RR and the NY Ontario & Western RR all passed through town. The first rail bed converted for use follows the former West Shore Division RR. This is a work in progress and so far only 1.5 miles of trail, in two segments are open. For more information visit; ONEIDA RAIL TRAIL .
Starting from Hubbard Place; Travel east past a gate along a wide grass lined rail bed through a wooded corridor. The trail travels out to Lenox Ave and ends. Currently, as of August 2016, a gap exists between the next section at Sayless St. Starting from Sayless St the wide grass lined rail trail continues east along a residential corridor atop a berm ending after only 0.5 miles next to the Seneca Street/ Oneida HS parking lot.
