Amish Geotrail

    Geocaching is a real-world outdoor treasure hunting game and we have two Amish Geo Trails for you to explore. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using GPS-enabled devices and then share their experiences online. New York’s Amish Geo Trail (NYAGT) has been developed to encourage visiting cachers and residents to explore and get to know areas of western Cattaraugus County that are new to them as they travel the highways and byways of the Enchanted Mountains.

    About New York's Amish Trail

    New York’s Amish Trail in Cattaraugus County is not your typical Amish community; there is no commercialization here like you find in the larger familiar Amish areas in the Northeast. This pastoral settlement consists of an Old Order Amish people that continue to live out their day to day lives the old-fashioned way. No modern conveniences such as electric and motorized vehicles are used to carry out their responsibilities for the day.

    When you “get lost” on New York’s Amish Trail, you will find yourself surrounded by beautiful scenery in a
    peaceful atmosphere that will calm the noise in your soul and help you refresh and revisit life at a slower
    pace.

    As you travel the country highways, you will see handpainted signs depicting the commodity that each Amish
    business has. Follow those hand-painted signs down the side roads to their business where you can purchase
    anything from toys to quilts, lumber, furniture, candy and more. Each of the Amish craftsmen specializes in
    a product, so make an adventure out of locating the Amish Shop that sells what you are looking to purchase.
    For more information, please call 1-800-331-0543 or contact us.
