Outdoor Adventures in Buffalo

Buffalo has transformed into a mecca for urban outdoor adventure. We’ve created miles of parks and trails along our lakeshore; converted our concrete canyon of 100-foot-tall waterfront grain silos into a hub for kayaking, zip lining and rock climbing; paved new cycling lanes on streets across the city and even invented ice bikes to keep the thrills going year-round.


Find yourself in Buffalo’s Great Outdoors


Extend your visit by exploring Western New York’s sweeping coastlines, rolling hills, cavernous ravines and towering forests. Windsurf along our lakeside beaches. Hike to the Eternal Flame Falls in Chestnut Ridge Park, one of the world’s only naturally occurring flames set behind a waterfall. Spend a day among the soaring gorges of Zoar Valley. Or cast a line for Lake Erie smallmouth bass and walleye on a chartered boat tour.


With 20 percent of the world’s freshwater at our doorstep, there’s a good chance your next visit here will be on or along our lakes, rivers and creeks (or perhaps to that world-famous waterfall just 20 miles downstream from Buffalo). Browse through the ideas and stories below to plan your next adventure!
