Eighteen cheerful hikers enjoyed a 4-mile scenic gorge hike, starting at the trailhead on South Creek Road in Hamburg. At the 2-mile turnaround point there was a comical sign: TRAIL ENDS HERE. The Creek’s name is based on the distance between its Lake Erie terminus and the Niagara River. There is another Eighteen Mile Creek in WNY that flows into Lake Ontario, which is named for the same criteria. I never realized this until I researched the Creek before our hike…. Cool!
