To Do Roc Map

Very pretty and easy to follow trail. Great for walking, snowshoeing, dog walking. I don't love it for running because the footpath is extremely narrow in some places and difficult to run. if you do run it, I recommend trail shoes even though the trail is flat and not very rugged, just because you find yourself wanting to run in the grass alongside the footpath.

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.

Does this park require permits?

very nice trail. it is well maintained for miles. It is a easy walk, family and dog friendly.

We parked on the side of the road and made our way up the dead end road past the farm house.

There was a clear snowmobile trail to the right that we passed and continued down the road.

Beautiful area with plenty to see. In summer it must be lovely!

There are a lot of trails to explore out there. Some of it is near buildings and houses, but the part near buildings has a couple ponds. Could be good for trail running.

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.

Trail is well marked on the east side of the bay. The west side of the bay is not marked at all and you will have to walk on the road twice if you chose to hike the loop. My recommendation is hike south from the beginning of the bay by MacGregors bar and as soon as you hit the road turn around and hike back, don't do the loop.

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.

If you are here for scenic views, be disappointed. If you are here to see nature and beautiful forest and wetland, look no farther. Birds sing, even late in the year. Deer bound across your way, and it is beautiful. A heron takes flight from the marshes and settles down again a distance away. Bring hiking boots, due to the mud. The trails are easily accessible, and at this time of year, the trails are mostly clear, save for the odd person Nordic walking the trails. However, the trail length of 7.5 miles is misleading. I followed the purple, then the green trails, and it came out to something like 4.0 miles. If you hiked all of the trails together, including the red and blue, you'd probably come out to 7.5 miles. Overall, though, it's definitely a place I'd come back to again, for hiking, birding, and just watching wildlife.

Beautiful Park! The dam was dry due to low water flow but the waterfalls were flowing nicely.

There is no indication that your in the right spot for the trail. Lucky for me there was someone already there who knew where to go. Your going to walk past the farm house and continue down the dirt road and the trail is off that. Unfortunately I was looking for a nice fall hike, but the trail had signs that it was closed due to hunting. I would suggest looking the trails up on a different source than this app cause they do not indicate weather or not the trails are open.I was not going to risk hiking it in hunting season, so I cannot fully review the trail.

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.

Peaceful walk in the woods. We parked at the Garnsey Road lot, and hiked on the south side. The trails are very well marked and well maintained. The Orange trail has lots of ups and downs. We hiked the Orange trail to the overlook and returned by way of the Blue.

Nice trail. My 3 year old son was able to navigate the inclines and descents of the orange trail.(w/ a lil help) So peaceful walking through the woods.

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.

Nice area to hike. There are many trails crossing this trail . However it is not well marked as to where each goes. With better signs would rate higher. It is easy to follow a trail if you know what color path you want.

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.

Definitely a challenging hike, but totally worth it to see the bay at the end. Tried this trail in Sept and the bugs were slightly annoying, so make sure you bring bug spray. Brought my dog and he really enjoyed it. Will do it again!

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

It starts near a farm but you're at the right place! Didn't finish but got up to the apple farm and was certainly even nice up to there.

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.

Won't let me give it only 1 star. Didn't hike it. A friend and her niece had their rear windows smashed out in the parking lot. Don't want mine done.

good trail, hiked it with my 5 year old.

we went here because it was marked dog friendly. unless you have a very independent dog, I would not recommend it. trails were incredibly steep in some spots, and we lost sight of the trail it was so overgrown in others. I'd say this is more meant for hiking and mountain bike riding.

First time coming here, nice trails, not badly marked. Lots of bugs as to be expected some trails were over grown with that said there was a gentleman near the old rifle range clearing brush back from trails with a machete.

some news views but paths are noy clear and bugs were horrible

The mileage in the description for this loop is not accurate-- the Ridge Trail is 1.4 miles long, and the Wetlands trail is 2.1 miles, so the loop of these two trails is 3.5 miles rather than 7.5. The trails are walking rather than hiking trails, and are generally flat, wide, mowed grass trails. Sections of the trail are very muddy, with parts ankle deep.

Hiked the blue, white, and some of the red trail. Good elevation changes and marked trails.

My girlfriend and I had a great time on the trails and at the falls. Camp grounds were nice and neighbors pleasent. I recommend this park to all because it has something for everyone. Enjoy folks, she's a beauty!
