Mendon Ponds Park is the largest Monroe County Park with 2,500 acres of woodlands, ponds, wetlands and glacially created landforms. In 1969, it was named to the National Registry of Natural Landmarks due to its geologic history and presence of significant kames, eskers, and kettles. This distinct park offers six Lodges and seven Shelters, all available for rental. Mendon Ponds has many recreational areas; Sharon’s Sensory Garden, Wild Wings, Inc., a Youth Camping area, and a boat launch (non-motorized boats only).

So great! A little of everything on this trail.

Nice trail -one of my favorites in Mendon. It's got some good ups and downs and is well marked. I did this last week and it definitely had some slick and icy parts in the snow. Some of the trail is ny the road which isn't the nicest but overall it's an enjoyable hike. I saw two deer as well by the water tower. In years past I have cross country skied this trail as well.

Spotted a coyote on this trail this afternoon. He ran away from me! Beautiful walk otherwise.

have hiked and snow shoed here multiple times. nice if you're looking to get out for a few hours close to rochester. plenty to explore in the park

Great fairly easy hike if you stick to the main trail. Good combination of wooded and open areas with a good amount of ridge hiking. Only negative is there are a lot of loose stones on the sharper inclines.

It is a decent trail. Not busy at all so a good place to hike and relax. Pay close attention to the markers though or you may go in circles all day. Make sure you wear bug spray!
