Trail was decent but we had inch worms raining on us while hiking and the lake view wasn’t really that great after the difficult hike.

Nice trail, decent elevation, muddy in a few spots. Lots of birdsong and some cool, rare wildflowers along the trail too.

this trail is a great one I took my kids with me had a good time it's a challenge gotta prepare yourself but overall great trail

Great trails for hiking or more advanced trail running. Beautiful scenic views of the bay and lots of elevation change to keep it interesting. The white and green trails are Best marked and easiest to follow. White trail out and back hitting the green loop both directions is about 5k.

Trails are in good shape. Certainly easy to find routes off and back to the main trail. Good rugged exploring.

Couldn’t be happier. Ends right on the water—bring your camp coffee setup for at A+ coffee outside.

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!

Smelled like skunk most of the hike, muddy. Best thing was the bear carcass about 2 miles in.

We this morning, due to snow, falling trees and never being there before the trail was difficult to follow. Ended up in some guys back yard and walked down empire blvd to get back to car. I think one or two more markets placed correctly it would be great. We will be back.

The trail was challenging and a lot of fun. It was pretty slick which added to the fun! I can see what some were saying about the lack of trail markers in certain areas. I will be definitely be back.

Nice trail. I've did this trail this past week and in the fall before the snow came. It's got some ups and downs but I would rate it as moderate, not hard. I did the white trail down to the bay and then mostly took the white trail back as well. I thought it was pretty well marked now but can see how with leaves on the trees it would be hard to follow. I'll go back and explore off the white trail next time.

Moderately difficult trail. Fairly hilly. Needs more trail markers. I attempted the trail posted here as a "2.6 mile loop" but it doesn't really exist. Check out the Monroe County map PDF here to get a better idea of the trails:

Trails are poorly marked. Great views and few challenging climbs

Tuesday, October 04, 2016

nice views. I wouldn't call it difficult like say gothics mt. I might have wanted to watch the Ryder cup and drink beer instead.
but this was much better. my wife says.

Nice trail but needs to be marked better !

trails were great, intense. however, stat on the main trails unless you want an adventure that leads to steep climb up and down. trails hit the water in a couple points which are a nice touch and at end when you get to the big building there is a floating dock you can relax on before heading back. if you don't feel like going back through the woods, you can take the road all the way back to the park (up to empire boulevard and over to Abraham Lincoln park) where you started.

Abraham Lincoln park is a hidden gem, located just a few miles out from the city of Rochester. The trails can become a little unforgiving if you're not prepared. They're also labeled poorly, but its so beautiful you can easily forgive the park mangers. I suggest taking the white trail all the way to the bay, and returning on the red trail, which scales the incline of the rim of the bay. Had a great time there! Will indeed be returning.

A great hike with a wonderful ending by the bay (taking white trail).

Saturday, August 20, 2016

Great hike if you like hikes through the woods with a lot of ups and downs. Don't forget the bug spray!

Monday, August 01, 2016

You have to love hiking and climbing Hills in the woods but if you do this is a greatly rewarding trail.

In the spring and summer the bugs can be vicious though. Well marked trails and awesome views from some points.

Worth doing for sure

The trails are not clearly marked and it is very confusing

Sunday, June 26, 2016

Lots of bugs on my face. Yuck!

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Nicely marked trails on east side of bay which is far more hilly than trails on west side

Saturday, June 18, 2016

Great trail system, with cool terrain and scenery. Lots of Chipmunks :)

Thursday, June 02, 2016

Fun trail! Lots of elevation change made it interesting and a nice workout. Other than some large hills to walk up, I wouldn't classify this a difficult. There seemed to be lots of opportunities to make your way down to the waters edge, although we only took the most obvious ones. The trails seemed to be marked ok, but there are a lot of other trails/footpaths that aren't marked and that was a bit confusing in some cases.

follow the colored trails.
the map above is a little deceiving the white trail is not a loop.
