Overall this trail is good. However my son and I decided to hike this trail based off the rating as “easy”. This definitely is not. This is a moderate trail. There are easy parts to it but there are also a lot of elevation changes. We got stuck in a huge downpour and the lack of trail markings had us off course. Thanks to my app I was able to navigate us out. Mosquitoes and deer flies are an issue here so definitely use bug spray.

Nice trail with some beautiful spots along the way. It was poorly marked and I had to back track in a few spots. At one point you have to walk on the street and the path to get back on the trail isn’t clearly marked either.

Never before have I been so attacked by bugs while mountain biking. It was the worst. Horseflies and mosquitoes were everywhere. On top of that, while I've been here before (last year) to mountain bike, I forgot how poorly marked everything is. Honestly, nothing is marked at all. It can be fun if you like very technical riding and have a full suspension bike, but to me, when it gets really technical, it stops being fun. I won't be coming back.

This trail is not easy. I would say moderate. It is very noisy from Route 590 and not marked well at all.

While I enjoyed this trail it was not easy. I would classify as moderate. The loop also came to a road and it was unclear where to pick up the loop. The loop was also not marked but some of the other trails were marked.

Cool web of trails, had to cut in half, wandered around in April and was pretty dry after a rain the day before

Very noisy with traffic. Beautiful views once you get hidden in the woods but you can still hear 590. Not great trail markers either. Without the map we would have gotten lost.

This is a beautiful trail but NOT for biking. Too steep, lots of bare roots, and need to weave in & out of trees. I don't know why this is marked "easy", it must be a typo. I would say this is a challenging hiking trail, for sure.

Pretty. I could see where i kayak in the warmer weather. Very poorly marked. Monroe County has some work to do. Glad to have water & highway as points of reference for where I was. I’d rather do a more hikers less bikers trail.

Great long trail along water and n hills. Only problem is no mountain bikers have any etiquette... is it so hard to tell someone walking their dog that your coming up.. wtf

The sign with the map in the parking lot says that these are black diamond mountain biking trails, and new visitors would be wise to heed that. These aren't easy trails to mountain bike, and shouldn't be done by beginners. For hiking, sure, it's accessible to pretty much anybody, so just be aware. Honestly, I don't think Tryon is as much fun to bike as, say, Dryer Road Park or Bay Park West, largely because the trails are so technical.

One of my favorite Rochester mtn biking parks. GROC has done a great job maintaining these trails. I also frequent these trails for running with my dogs

I used to play paintball here as a child. I like that it's still managed and available for hikes .

Lots of Deer flies, most trails washed out by running water, bad smell near Tryon Park rd. from drain under 590.

Not a bad place to explore around. There was a garbage and broken glass (and a not so hot smell) in some areas. The trails themselves were good, but I would rather do Bay Trail or Lucien if I am in the area. They are cleaner and roughly similar in difficulty and have more opportunities to get near the water.
