Our Goals

CCETS is a group of volunteers dedicated to the growth and management of this Horse Trail System in Cherry Creek, Chautauqua County, New York. We enhance and maintain the trails for sustainability for public use on State, County, Town and Private Lands. We are a destination trail system, taking you in to Cherry Creek for Ice Cream, breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Miles of Trail

Over 30 miles when Phase 4 is completed- DEC trail disc markers are used on state forest. Trails utilize color coding on both state and private trail along with signage.  Trails are open June 1-September 30 annually and traverse across state and private lands. Please be respectful and stay on the designated trail at all times. From October 1 – 30 the Ruttenbur Trailhead to Boutwell Hill Road Trailhead is open.
