Fun as an easy walk, nice water features.

Beautiful hike! If you’re not used to a narrow rocky trail then be aware, but it isn’t especially steep. There are stairs on the initial climb. The easy side is beautiful and lush, it was sprinkling when I took my dog - we were dry under the trees with the water dripping in the lake beside us. Very peaceful. We will be back!

Nice easy hike! Nice views. There is one area that is a bit tricky if you have limited mobility, as it is a staircase that is not well taken care of but it is short. Did spot some poison ivy along the side so be cautious.

very nice easy trail.

My wife, daughter and I walked this trail today. Very user friendly. It was more of a stone path than a trail. The falls are not that far in and they are just off the stone path. You have to cross a small waterway that’s lined with stone so you can do this easily with kids it’s about 4 or 5 feet wide. We walked about 2.2 miles out before turning around and heading back. Great views and definitely kid friendly.

Very scenic and beautiful trail. The trail is marked well, with plenty of signs. I start at Mertensia Park, at the entrance, and go to Powder Mill Park. You can also turn onto Lehigh Valley Trail midway and head towards Mendon. After Mendon you can head on the N/S Lehigh Valley Trail to head past Rush. Overall tons of scenery. You will likely see deer and other wildlife on the trail.

Great place to bring the family.

Two radically different hikes/walks in one loop. Definately a crowded park!

Was great for the dogs. Totally shaded. Flat. Little other traffic. Loved it.

Trail let’s you hike out of the noise in the rest of the park. My dog loves going in and out of the creek!

It's a great beach and campground. Plenty of places to walk, fish, and kayak as well.

Not a hiking trail, but it's easy to walk for children or pet-walking.

When I lived in Rochester, this was one of my favorite places to go walk. Sometimes, I'd walk out to the Abbott's in Bushnell's Basin and back!

trail running

First I would like to say that the map here is incomplete. The trail is about 10 miles altogether.

I wouldn't actually call what you do on the main trail "trail running," because it's wide and flat and easy peasy (but "running" wasn't an option in the menu). But it's one of my favorite places for a long, easy, pleasant, pretty run. I usually pick up the trail at Mertensia Park on Mertensia Road in Farmington. I have not found the trail to be poorly marked as another user said it was. When you reach East Victor Road there is an option to follow a more rugged foot trail by going straight (this includes a stream crossing and at the time of this post that section is currently closed due to construction), or you may bypass that by turning right and following East Victor Road and Break Of Day Road to the next trail head. (There is signage that indicates this.)

There are several side trails that you can take once you reach Victor (and west of Victor) if you would like to mix in some more rugged trails and avoid the village streets (the main trail follows streets for a bit in the village).

The portion of the trail west of Victor can be a bit isolated and boring for a while until you get to Fishers. The portion between Main Street Fishers and Railroad Mills Road is extremely pretty, with streams and bridges and a horse farm. The mural in the NYS Thruway underpass is coming along nicely.

All in all a favorite trail of mine.

Decent trail. some of the bridges could use some attention. It was muddy the day I visited but it was still a pleasant walk. I would visit again.

This is a great trail, very diverse. Several ponds and streams open area stocked with bird houses, the trailer eventually leading into a dense worded area. The trails are very clearly marked and well maintained.

trails are icy but all around good hike!

I started in the parking lot behind Panorama Plaza and the trail is not that pretty (behind businesses and an apartment complex) until after the 441 bridge, which is where Linear Park/Channing Philbrick Park is. The trail is well marked and has red blazes while inside the park. This trail is busy! It was very cold and drizzling and I saw at least 10 people. This would be good stroll with kids but I prefer less foot traffic. The trail just ends randomly (see picture). I would recommend starting at the park, not at the plaza like I did.

Did the whole orange trail again - skipping the first part because it was under water last time. The frozen ground mad it much easier and drier. Even though it was in the 30s there were quite a few other people on the trail. It's a great way to explore around Fairport. I especially like the part that is near Indian Hill. Good way to get a bunch of miles under the belt if you are working up to a bigger hike.

Not sure where you pick this trail up near Mertensia but the best place to start is at the end of Mickey Finn's parking lot. This is NOT in Farmington. It's a double wide gravel trail. Very easy. Keep your dogs on leash. You pass backyards and at least one good course. It really quite pretty.

a nice pleasant hike. Very nice scenery and quite. I will definitely be back.

trail is very poorly marked after east victor road. You cross into a drainage ditch to a wooden bridge that leads to nowhere. will never walk this trail again.

Not sure if I put this in the right crescent trail one but the recording I did is one of my favorite parts of the trail. It goes around a bunch of ponds and there were ducks, geese, turtles and a couple either white herrings or egrets. The plants are tall so you feel like you are away from others. I love it. Looking forward to doing another long crescent trail hike.

So where it is marked is a little miss leading. You will park at the Pathways entrance but a little down it splits off to this one which is a side trail running closer to the water. Other than that the trails (Pathways and Double) are nice. I wouldn't suggest taking young kids on the Double because you have to cross part of the river/stream but it is actually nice.

Good shade, not too tough. Bring a fishing pole!

Great trail took my 5, 7 and 13 year old kids. They did it easy.

The main trail is alright and the water is pretty, but the side trails are full of graffiti spray painted on trees and garbage on the ground. Also, if you bring a dog, be careful as there is broken glass in many places on both trails.

Beautiful!
