Description
Waypoints (0)

This is a family-friendly trail with convenient parking. You will get a great scenic view of the lake. It can be very crowded on nice days. There are two parallel paths, one is for walking and the other is for bikes. Accessibility: There are 4 designated handicapped-accessible spaces in the paved parking lot Onondaga Lake Parkway. All of them are van-accessible with striped access aisles. The trail surface is paved, smooth, and typically at least 10 feet wide. The estimated grade is flat (1% or less), so this trail will likely be navigable for most wheelchairs/mobility equipment or strollers.

Fun little area for kids to walk and enjoy nature in the heart of the city. Plenty of snow for our December visit plus some sunshine made for one fun afternoon.

Very family friendly, easy parking and nice easy walk. Can be very crowded on nice days and can tend to smell during certain hot summer days (i live in the area and this is generally known by many)

Flat, paved path along the shore of Onondaga Lake. Nice place for an evening stroll. There are two parallel paths, one for walking and the other for bikes and "wheels"

Great trail! Paved and marked along the way. I parked in the orange lot for the fair and rode the trail to the Salt Museum in Liverpool. This actually was two trails. The county intends to combine them with others to make a trail all the way around the lake. I was out about 11am on Fathers Day, no bugs, partially shaded, lots of people walking, jogging and riding. Trail is wide so you have plenty of room to pass

We combined the West Shore Trail and the Shoreline Walking Trail to achieve nearly 16 miles round trip on our bikes. The whole thing is paved and mostly flat. The West Shore is beautiful but you can still hear the noise from the highway. I tired to zone it out and focus on the multitude of singing birds.

Love this trail. Beautiful views of the lake with places to sit and enjoy. I ride this paved trail frequently, often enjoying the adjacent unpaved trail as well.

Excellent. A great trail, paved all the way for very safe cycling. The trail now extends continuously around three quarters of Onondaga Lake. What an amazing asset to Syracuse visitors and residents. You can experience sunrise, sunset, forests, manicured parkland and lovely water views from many vantage points. Highly recommended.

They have done a great job on this side of the lake thus far. Beautifully maintain ed, great for a run, walk, or a bike ride. Well shaded with some nice views of the lake.
