What is the very best trail in the Buffalo/upstate N.Y. region?

Hi,

I will be attending a Bills game next weekend. Go Bills!!!! and I was hoping somebody on BF could tell me the very best trail in area since I likely will only be able to get out for one ride. I lived in Buffalo for a time so I am assuming there is some amazing single track in the holiday valley area. ANY HELP WOULD BE TOTALLY AMAZING.

Closest is Sprague Brook, but the best riding is the trail system in Ellicottville.

"Over the past 15 years, Ellicottville has gone from a large state forests with no singletrack trails to one of the best cycling destinations in the east. "

Okaaay... I've ridden all over the world, and these are some of my favorite trails anywhere.

What I can say is that I know these guys, and they are really a model for patient advocacy under often difficult circumstances, and have been successful building a lot of really first-rate singletrack. IMO, they deserve great respect.

Im laughing at the hard sell is all. No disrespect intended to advocates / trailbuilders anywhere, ever. But part of the connotation of the term "east coast cycling destination" is that people have actually heard of it/are talking about it as such.

I will wear my old Raccoon Rally t-shirt today to help continue raise awareness.
