to hike just for hiking sake it good

Love this park but it is a little secluded (I'd recommend going with someone) - great for mountain biking. Bust out your snowshoes in the winter and hit this park.

I grew up in this park and it has changed a lot over the years. When I was a kid there were almost no trails in here and sometimes teens would drive motorized dirtbikes through the park.
Lots of nighttime bonfires happened here.
There used to be a huge pipe running over head, high above the forest floor not far from the entrance but recently it has been taken down. Apparently someone fell off it and died 30 or 40 years ago.
Lots of mountainbiking here now too which I did when I was younger, but these are hard trails to bike on so be forewarned. Many more trails built by the community and a lot more people hiking around define this park today. Unfortunately you no longer see the deer in this park that used to be there.
This park may have been used for some sort of waste disposal many years ago as Irondiquoit bay was a big sewage pond for Rochester and the surrounding areas, but that was prior to the 1950s and this park has recovered greatly. You can see remnants of some sort of structure in the lower part of the park where the trees open up if you go off the trails a little. Also you can see the remains of several wrecked cars that were driven down there when you used to be able to bring a vehicle further into the park.
