The GPS does not bring you to the trail, but the true loaction with parking is just down the road! The coordinates are:

42.3578222, -79.4619237

This is a nice, long, straightforward walk on a trail about 3-4 yards wide. The land on ethier side of the trail is posted for most of the walk. A great spot for those looking to walk or jog through an area with plenty of changing scenery.

Easy flatland trail with several changes in the scenery. It smells wonderful in the spring and large portions of the trail are very peaceful. Just please be careful when hiking in the spring as there are a lot of Eastern Red Spotted Newts that will also be sharing the trail and they are very small. We counted 80+ in just a small portion of the trail.

There is a trail by the school but it is much shorter. The longer trails are further out of town. Completely amazing and peaceful. Love the miles of groomed trails. Perfect for spring and winter hikes.

No trail where the GPS sends you. Very confusing! We eventually found an entrance behind Brocton high school. Paved and gravel/dirt paths, crosses a few roads. Pretty once you actually find it.
