Amish Trail & Country Tour

Nestled within the Enchanted Mountains of Cattaraugus County, behind the hustle and bustle of today's world, sits the NY Amish Trail.  A place where you can take a step back in time, slow down and enjoy a simpler way of life. 

The NY Amish Trail is a self-guided tour through our Amish area, including the town of Leon which is the largest Old-Order Amish community in the United States.  These people have resisted innovations and live without electricity, phones, cars and other modern conveniences.

Follow their hand-painted signs to their businesses, usually located in their homes.  You can stop at their shops and purchase quilts, furniture or baked goods any day except Sunday.  Take a drive through Amish country, step back in time and enjoy the simpler things in life along New York's Amish Trail.

Enjoy the modern conveniences at any of our non-Amish partners listed on

Look for the Amish Trail signs!

Please remember to respect the Amish peoples' privacy and personal property, and don’t photograph them, as it is against their beliefs. As you tour the enchanted countryside, drive cautiously and watch for black, slow-moving, horse-drawn buggies.
