Fun little park and walk in the woods with my kids. The little play ground was perfect way for my boys to burn off some energy before and after the trail.

Lovely 1.5 mile out & back trail that’s well maintained and accessible from either end of the trail. The trail offers a wide and mostly flat path with a few bridges that cross over the creek. There is a nice little swimming hole at about half way, but not deep enough to jump off the bridge into it. There are several dams that you can walk on/across. Few possible fishing spots. Would recommend for all ages!

Nice short trail with a lot to see. Plenty of options for the dog to get into the water which was nice.

What a great find! This out and back trail takes you into the woods on a very well maintained, wide gravel path. Along the path, you’ll cross over many small bridges where you can admire Skaneateles Creek flowing below. We visited after a spell of rainy spring days so the creek was high and rushing pretty quickly. There are small, short footpaths that go off of the main path to get you closer to the water at certain points. There are also building ruins along the way. Highly recommend this path if you would like an easy stroll through the woods that is less than two miles round trip. Has the potential to be buggy so wear repellent, just to be safe. A mix of shade and sun made this walk perfect. Enjoy!

This is a nice light trail I was able to so with my jogging stroller. It is very buggy during the summer months (mosquitos etc) so be mindful of that before heading out. A lot of really neat things to look at while on the trail (old buildings, falls). The trail offers a lot of canopy shade from the trees on a hot summer day.

Short walk with a small waterfall along the way where you can sit on a bench, there's a river I like to sit in in the summer, it's a very nice, easy walk. Well maintained

More of a pleasant walk than a hike but it was beautiful with lots of sights to see. Look forward to walking this again. Smooth stone dust path would be ideal for wheelchairs or strollers. Be sure to visit distillery!

A nice gravel trail with some fun and interesting history. Stay from the trail a little bit and you will find foundation remains from old mills that were once all over the area. Perfect for children.

This trail is in Mottville,NY. Just north of Skaneateles,NY. On maps it is known as " Mill Road Nature Trail ".The trail runs for just longer than 1 mile between Mill Road just north of Old Seneca Turnpike and Crow Hill Road in Mottville. The pretty little trail crosses the creek via three wooden bridges and meanders through a forested corridor. Along the way you'll see remains of the railroad, dams, and millworks buildings. Parking is available at both ends: in Mottville at Crow Hill Road and Frost Street; north of Skaneateles around 4144 Mill Road (Old Seneca Turnpike).
