love this place!!!!

Challenging trail down to the water. Not for the faint of knee. Feels so good when you make it back to the top though. Pretty trail. Second time hiking it but we saw an eagle the first time.

Great hike today! In mid 7o's weather. The trail through the meadow is well defined and marked when needed. The trail down to Canadice lake is well marked - not sure about earlier reviews - I've been hiking this trail for the last 3 years. The trail from the summit to the lake has some relatively new switchbacks making the climb easier but not really easy. All in all a fine trail to hike.

Harriet HollisterSpencer trail system is much larger than noted on app.I use the S6 loop which is marked well with yellow trail tags and is an awesome MTB trail 7.5 mile loop.Also have seen hikers,horseback and such out there.Complete snowmobile trail system marked as well and much more trail for all to enjoy.Again it’s a much larger trail system than noted.

Great trails, seems to be three trails, blue is shorter and takes you down by the swamp, green is a casual stroll through the woods with very well open pathway, and red is more of a workout climbing up the hill and around back down the other side connecting once again to the green trail. Overall a great hike and fun time!

This is some real backwoods hiking. Be prepared to cross some large logs. I got to the first little falls and turned around and went back.

Decent short trail for NY. I did the trail just after a few days of rain and of course it was quite muddy at the top. If your looking for a nice dry trail...try going West of the Mississippi. Once you get to the actual descent and the trail leading to it, it’s a nice dry hike. Really quiet and empty....never saw a fellow hiker. Great trail for any skill level and family friendly. If you have done trails at stony brook, and your not impressed by crowds, NYS park fees, and dirty diaper trail markers, give these lesser known trails a shot. Enjoy.

My friend and I went here after a different hike. We thought we would grab some geo caches (and did). The are many more trails than this app shows. There were a lot of great wild flowers in bloom (5/27) like violets, azure bluet, cranebill, lady slippers, trillium, Jack-in-the_pulpit, mayapple, starflower, foamflower and a fringed polygala - which I’d never seen before! The view from the overlook is amazing. I might come back in the fall to find the remaining geocaches and see the view with the foliage. Park looks set up for many winter activities- snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowmobiling but I’m not a winter gal.

This trail proved to be elusive and possibly non-existent as of today (5/23/18). I attempted to locate the trail off of Densmore Rd by parking in the Middle School lot as suggested on another site. I was unsuccessful. I looked along the creek south of the school with no luck. I looked along the north side, across the street from the school, with no luck. I drove over to Cranberry Landing and parked in the back. I walked along the back of the property and found what appeared to be the entrance at the far eastern end. This entrance was wide. However, a path was not marked and only by chance did I notice a small overgrown path to my left. I took a chance and started down a very steep slope. A short way in and I started to hear the water falling. I made my way to the falls and snapped a few pictures. I then attempted to walk along the overgrown path (I am on the south side of the creek). I walked East and the path ended abruptly. I turned back and walked West. Again, the path ended abruptly. Many large fallen trees on both ends. Overall, I would say that this is definitely hidden. The waterfall didn't have much water flowing today and the path was overgrown and appears to not have been maintained in some time.

Great trail. Bring water shoes or waterproof hiking boots, you will be walking through water.

We attempted to hike Rob's Trail to Canadice Lake today. First, the trail is not marked. Secondly, we followed the very soggy path for about 3/4 miles in but due to the ankle high mud we decided to turn back. Lastly, we drove to the lakeside about 15 minutes away and the lake was perfect. My afterthought about the trail: The meadow had several song birds which gave my wife good photography opportunities.

great trail. well maintained area.

Nice little, extremely easy trail. We went when ice and snow dominated the surface. The view of Honeoye Lake is a nice payoff.

A hidden gem - I wish those place was bigger. Great place to go especially for bird watching. There is a gun range semi near by so you might here shots. The tall trees and overall beauty of this area are great.

Yeah, it's been a wet summer but this trail is a muddy mess. Not much fun. We never could find the trail that heads down to the water...not marked. The meadows are at least pretty.

This was well maintained and clearly marked trail with lots of varying terrain. We took the Hemlock Lake Trail today. There were quite of few hikers on the trail today. The trip back to the parking lot was quite the work out. I would not have rated this an easy trail. We are planning to go back to hike to Canadice Lake.

Trail is confusing. Beware-- following mapped trail leads to electrified fence. No markings. Our 13 year old got severely shocked. Then an obvious side trail down the gorge leads to a dead end above a steep waterfall with extremely challenging way down. Very dangerous. After that, lovely.

One of my favorite hikes. I'v accessed it from both ends of Canadice Lake and then Old Bald Hill Rd. S.
My preference is to park on Old Bald Hill Rd. S. parking lot and go to Canadice Lake and then back up past the parking lot and down to Hemlock Lake and finally back to the parking lot.
This is about 7 miles round trip, and 1200 ft. elevation gain. Such a nice workout.

The drive to the park was more interesting than the hike. I would suggest going there in the summer to see if my current rating will improve.

Went out on a chilly February morning. Nice walk along lake. Ascent up to Rob's trail was very muddy. More mud on top, but overall a lot of fun. Definitely worth getting out for a hike with my daughter and friends.

Me and my gf adventured down this trail for the first time last week. Towards the end due to the winter weather the closer you get to the lake the more difficult it gets due to the snow and mud. In all it was well maintained and challenging enough.

A nice short trail, with educational plaques for plant life. The path pass the main area is slightly overgrown/narrow. But still easily passable. there is a small stoned area for parking, couple hundred feet from the trail head.

The trails are fairly well kept. And easy enough below the drumlin. The trails up the drumlin are fairly moderate. They also hold events for educating children.

The trails at the base of the drumlin are all fairly easy. The drumlin trail is more moderate difficulty. With narrower trails then the trails at the base.

fun climb but got there at 6 and climb to the road up at the top then walk down the road a little and cut down the woods to the parking lot to make it back before dark. I plan on going back and have more time to explore.
