Very pretty and easy to follow trail. Great for walking, snowshoeing, dog walking. I don't love it for running because the footpath is extremely narrow in some places and difficult to run. if you do run it, I recommend trail shoes even though the trail is flat and not very rugged, just because you find yourself wanting to run in the grass alongside the footpath.

My husband and I went on this trail a few times last year and loved it! This year within the first 2 miles my bike tire was punctured due to copious amounts of broken glass near the Niagara Street portion in Canandaigua. Exercise caution during your walk or ride.

Wide, easy straight path lined with tall trees. Its family and pet friendly with lots of points where you can get off the path to play in the nearby creek.

Such a beautiful and quiet trail. All you could hear was the water and the birds. Super relaxing.

Great trail well kept we went with 3 adults a 10 year old and a 3 year old. The kids had bikes we also took a stroller which was great the 3 year old got the first part and needed a ride back. We went to around the 3 mile mark and turned back

Can't say enough good things. This is a great children's hike. Very flat, wide, well groomed trail. Many things off to the sides to stop and enjoy. Great waterfalls and rocks to climb around on for kids or adults :)
