With the completion of its Genesee River project, Atlantic Richfield Company (AR) restored and re-opened an enhanced walking trail that runs along the River through the project site. The restored trail includes educational signage about the wetland treatment system to enhance the experience of walkers. In fall 2011, AR landscaped the trail with native plantings. In 2012, AR planted wildflowers and installed birdhouses on the closed landfill on site and then opened up a new trail spur over the landfill that will offer good views of the wetlands.
The trail is part of a system owned and operated by Allegany Trails, Inc. Allegany Trails plans to work with Jones Memorial Hospital to install outdoor fitness stations, benches and tables along the trail.
