Nice little, extremely easy trail. We went when ice and snow dominated the surface. The view of Honeoye Lake is a nice payoff.

The drive to the park was more interesting than the hike. I would suggest going there in the summer to see if my current rating will improve.

beautiful. next time I'll park at the end of the gaurd rail so I don't have to sit on the ground since I'm to short to step over.

This is a beautiful place, but the "point to point" description isn't totally accurate and the AllTrails map is useless. In fact, it's a network of many smaller trails, not all of which are well marked. Some trails are groomed in winter and marked with requests for skiers to stay on one side and hikers or snowshoe users on the other (which is a good idea). Others are apparently maintained by a snowmobile club (see photo). It's a good place for no-snow hiking, but if your goal is to do some serious mileage, you'll need to stitch together a bunch of smaller trails. Real maps are here:
Definitely bring a compass or GPS. The "comfort station" is really a brick outhouse with no running water. One of the two "rooms" had no toilet paper. Bring supplies. This place is worth the trip, as long as you don't panic when trails aren't marked like a nature walk at a children's day camp.
