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

The 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.
