The Crescent Trail is a system of footpaths within the Town of Perinton suitable for uses such as hiking, cross-country running, snowshoeing, nature study, and photography. Approximately thirty-five miles of footpaths provide public access to wooded hills, Town parklands, scenic overlooks, and more Most sections of the Crescent Trail are single-lane dirt pathways. A continuous, orange-blazed main trail is nearly completed planned as a crescent-shaped route between the southwest and northeast quadrants of Perinton. Additional branch trails, loop trails, connecting paths, and access paths allow self-guided walks of up to two hours. Longer, half-day or day-long outings can be enjoyed as point to point hikes or by using connections with the Trolley Trail or Canal Trail. Many sections of the Crescent Trail are on private land. The continued use of the Trail and the opening of new sections depend upon users obeying posted signs and respecting the rights of property owners. If you see trash on the Trail during your hike, please pick it up and carry it out, to help keep our trailways clean! Motorized and wheeled vehicles, including bicycles, are not permitted on the Crescent Trail.

Did the whole orange trail again - skipping the first part because it was under water last time. The frozen ground mad it much easier and drier. Even though it was in the 30s there were quite a few other people on the trail. It's a great way to explore around Fairport. I especially like the part that is near Indian Hill. Good way to get a bunch of miles under the belt if you are working up to a bigger hike.

Not sure if I put this in the right crescent trail one but the recording I did is one of my favorite parts of the trail. It goes around a bunch of ponds and there were ducks, geese, turtles and a couple either white herrings or egrets. The plants are tall so you feel like you are away from others. I love it. Looking forward to doing another long crescent trail hike.

As a native to Fairport I'm glad I did this portion. A lot of good parts but also a good portion of walking near roads and through backyards. I would try another portion.
