Bay Trail is a 2.6 mile lightly trafficked loop trail located near Webster, New York that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Nice trail. I've did this trail this past week and in the fall before the snow came. It's got some ups and downs but I would rate it as moderate, not hard. I did the white trail down to the bay and then mostly took the white trail back as well. I thought it was pretty well marked now but can see how with leaves on the trees it would be hard to follow. I'll go back and explore off the white trail next time.
Moderately difficult trail. Fairly hilly. Needs more trail markers. I attempted the trail posted here as a "2.6 mile loop" but it doesn't really exist. Check out the Monroe County map PDF here to get a better idea of the trails:
Trails are poorly marked. Great views and few challenging climbs
nice views. I wouldn't call it difficult like say gothics mt. I might have wanted to watch the Ryder cup and drink beer instead.
but this was much better. my wife says.
Nice trail but needs to be marked better !
trails were great, intense. however, stat on the main trails unless you want an adventure that leads to steep climb up and down. trails hit the water in a couple points which are a nice touch and at end when you get to the big building there is a floating dock you can relax on before heading back. if you don't feel like going back through the woods, you can take the road all the way back to the park (up to empire boulevard and over to Abraham Lincoln park) where you started.
Abraham Lincoln park is a hidden gem, located just a few miles out from the city of Rochester. The trails can become a little unforgiving if you're not prepared. They're also labeled poorly, but its so beautiful you can easily forgive the park mangers. I suggest taking the white trail all the way to the bay, and returning on the red trail, which scales the incline of the rim of the bay. Had a great time there! Will indeed be returning.
A great hike with a wonderful ending by the bay (taking white trail).
Great hike if you like hikes through the woods with a lot of ups and downs. Don't forget the bug spray!
You have to love hiking and climbing Hills in the woods but if you do this is a greatly rewarding trail.
In the spring and summer the bugs can be vicious though. Well marked trails and awesome views from some points.
Worth doing for sure
The trails are not clearly marked and it is very confusing
Lots of bugs on my face. Yuck!
Nicely marked trails on east side of bay which is far more hilly than trails on west side
Great trail system, with cool terrain and scenery. Lots of Chipmunks :)
Fun trail! Lots of elevation change made it interesting and a nice workout. Other than some large hills to walk up, I wouldn't classify this a difficult. There seemed to be lots of opportunities to make your way down to the waters edge, although we only took the most obvious ones. The trails seemed to be marked ok, but there are a lot of other trails/footpaths that aren't marked and that was a bit confusing in some cases.
follow the colored trails.
the map above is a little deceiving the white trail is not a loop.
Lovely- don't deviate from a trail once you have chose one. White is the trail we chose- hilly muddy terrain. Great workout. All in all it we did about 3.5 miles for in about and hour and a half!
