East Esker Trail is a 4.2 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Honeoye Falls, New York that features a waterfall and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until November. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
Trail head is on the north side of Pond Rd, between the intersections of Douglas Rd & Pittsford-Mendon Rd. The parking area is small with a Posted Brown Wooden sign "Horse Trailer Parking" or something similar. I will update with a picture next time I run the trail. This is a nice run with a lot of elevation changes, some of the hills are steep and in wet conditions deep lugged trail shoes are recommended. Pay close attention to the green markers as many have gotten lost on this run/hike.
So great! A little of everything on this trail.
Nice trail -one of my favorites in Mendon. It's got some good ups and downs and is well marked. I did this last week and it definitely had some slick and icy parts in the snow. Some of the trail is ny the road which isn't the nicest but overall it's an enjoyable hike. I saw two deer as well by the water tower. In years past I have cross country skied this trail as well.
Great fairly easy hike if you stick to the main trail. Good combination of wooded and open areas with a good amount of ridge hiking. Only negative is there are a lot of loose stones on the sharper inclines.
I absolutely love this trail. It takes me about two hours to complete when walking at a leisurely pace (total trail length is approximately 4.7 miles). As others have stated, it is very easy to wander off the trail so always keep a look out for green paint markers on the trees. There are also numerous hills and valleys on this trail which makes it interesting. The trail also goes near the road sometimes, which I don't find to be particularly enjoyable when out hiking, but overall a great hike!
Parts in woods parts out open. Good hike has ups and downs.
