Trail was nice and clear. not stroller friendly. have a jogging 3 wheel stroller that is great for trails but this one wasn't easy. would visit again but by myself.
As a native to Fairport I'm glad I did this portion. A lot of good parts but also a good portion of walking near roads and through backyards. I would try another portion.
