Nice park with a variety of hilly areas. I thought the trails were clearly marked but I also referred back to the trail map on my phone. I liked the blue trail. I don’t think i’d take small children on the white part of the trial near the bay, as the one side of the trail drops off into the the bay. The only bummer was that there were some heavy industrial machines grinding trees on the other side of the bay and it’s was pretty loud (see photo). I think it was just bad luck that i went on a day where they were working.

nice afternoon walk. several other people with dogs, everyone very nice along the trail. Even a couple cross country skiers left. all trails marked clearly. nice rolling hills and great view at the bench. Enjoyable day!!

Beautiful and scenic easy trail. A hidden gem in the area.

This park needs some maintenance! (I'm hoping it's because I went in winter and it will get cleaned up in the spring). There were trees down across the path - some climbing over/crawling under. The left path is super steep...watch out if it is muddy or icy (I'd recommend that most people avoid it under these conditions) but you do get some really nice views. I'll try this one again in summer/fall to see if it got cleaned up

Great hike! Well marked trails... good hills but not to hilly

Great trail! Some nice hills, very pretty. Took under 2 hours to do the 5 miles. I went when there was some snow on the ground, which was very icy underneath on most of the trail, maybe from the xc skis? So just be careful or bring your microspikes!

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.

Great hike, beautiful area. This is an easier hike with not a lot of elevation. Would do again. .

One of my favorite Rochester mtn biking parks. GROC has done a great job maintaining these trails. I also frequent these trails for running with my dogs

Well marked, saw plenty of white tail deer. Will definitely go again.

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.

The start of the overlook loop from coyotes den is very steep. My dog and I did a great job getting up it but I was nervous for him! It’s a beautiful view once at the top.

Parking at the end of Boxart. Not really a "trail" run but a beautiful run all the same.

This is my second time on this trail, and I enjoyed it even more than the first time. My concern originally was that I prefer narrow trails but that was when I was hiking alone. I went with a group this time and the wide trails were great. The whole park is very, very well maintained and that scenery is very enjoyable. It was pretty muddy in parts bu nothing you couldn't go around (mostly) or just get a little mud on the boots. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to hike - multiple trail options and plenty of nature. Just did a 5+ mile loop around the outside.

I used to play paintball here as a child. I like that it's still managed and available for hikes .

One of my favorite places to hike locally - that and Abe Lincoln right around the corner. Great little bit of trail system going down to the wet area with some neat streams (people kayak through). A little hilly but that adds to the fun. I recommend this to anyone as there are ways to make it easier or shorter if needed, or enough places to explore around for a few hours.

Great hike with the pup! Just make sure you follow the green markings if you want to stay on East Esker Trail. Lots of chipmunks and saw three whitetails!

Moderately strenuous. Hiking boots is a must as it was muddy in some areas.

Nice scenic oath. Mostly flat. I do wish that they did not blactop the path.

The hike is actually closer to 5 miles if you follow the green markers but it was a GREAT hike! My 4 and 7 year olds came along and did amazing! So proud! Will do this one again for sure!

Love this hike! The trails are a little confusing at first, but there is always great wildlife encounter. The park is full of deer, chipmunk, squirrels, plenty of birds, and at the creek I always see turtles and frogs. This is a great hike during the winter too. You can really see the old rifle range with all the leaves gone. Typically, there is very little traffic, which could also be why I like this park so much.

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.

Was able to walk to Lake Ontario from the parking lot and back. Very dog friendly park! Scenic views and even saw some deer.

Very buggy. Trails are marked but confusing. Was trying to loop and ended going back out on same trail. Would not do again.

Trails are very well marked but this is a busy place. If you don't mind that, it's worth checking out.
