Explore the most popular walking trails near Honeoye Falls with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

I did come across some horses, as well as horse shit. However, the trail offered a slightly(matter of opinion) challenging, steady incline, then periodic incline, combined with easy down hill or straight up walking.

Notable, green trail offered multiple bathroom stops.

Also a place to to refill your water.

Great trail! Some nice hills, very pretty. Took under 2 hours to do the 5 miles. I went when there was some snow on the ground, which was very icy underneath on most of the trail, maybe from the xc skis? So just be careful or bring your microspikes!

Great hike with the pup! Just make sure you follow the green markings if you want to stay on East Esker Trail. Lots of chipmunks and saw three whitetails!

Moderately strenuous. Hiking boots is a must as it was muddy in some areas.

The hike is actually closer to 5 miles if you follow the green markers but it was a GREAT hike! My 4 and 7 year olds came along and did amazing! So proud! Will do this one again for sure!

Good nature trail. More grass areas than expected. Will be a good trail for fall foliage. Pond view is nice.

Was nice. There was no sign at head of trail saying no dogs, but 3/4 around we find a sign. What? To late at this point, kept walking. Park rules say dogs on leash allowed. Was very wet when we walked. Update.... PDF on park we fist printed had no notes on No Dogs.. 10/14 printed another PDF for different hike and now noted No Dogs. wish that had been on first PDF.

Good trail, well marked with some nice meadow views. Occasionally you walk near the road but that's only for a few hundred yards. The trails had some washout down the center but after all the rain we had in the spring it's to be expected. Bugs weren't bad and saw a bunch of people throughout.

Good

Not sure where to hike to once we got to Rotary Park. No falls found hiking the trail towards the road. Would have been a nice feature if the park had some signage. The mosquitoes had a great feast while we where hiking.

This is our favorite Mendon Ponds hike. It's a little long for kids but with so much scenery and an opportunity to feed the birds out of your hands (without the crowds of the Bird Song Trail) we are able to get the kids into it. They also love the board walk that if slightly off of the trail. It is quite flat so it's not a difficult trail.

The best time to hike in this place is during Fall(October/November). Also, you can spot couple of deer. It takes roughly 2 hours to complete the trail.

Great trail with lots of varying terrain. We ran out of daylight or we would have finished it I would like to go back to complete the trail.

Nice trail -one of my favorites in Mendon. It's got some good ups and downs and is well marked. I did this last week and it definitely had some slick and icy parts in the snow. Some of the trail is ny the road which isn't the nicest but overall it's an enjoyable hike. I saw two deer as well by the water tower. In years past I have cross country skied this trail as well.

Spotted a coyote on this trail this afternoon. He ran away from me! Beautiful walk otherwise.

Great fairly easy hike if you stick to the main trail. Good combination of wooded and open areas with a good amount of ridge hiking. Only negative is there are a lot of loose stones on the sharper inclines.

I absolutely love this trail. It takes me about two hours to complete when walking at a leisurely pace (total trail length is approximately 4.7 miles). As others have stated, it is very easy to wander off the trail so always keep a look out for green paint markers on the trees. There are also numerous hills and valleys on this trail which makes it interesting. The trail also goes near the road sometimes, which I don't find to be particularly enjoyable when out hiking, but overall a great hike!

Excellent trail for cross country running or a brisk walk. The relative lack of stones and roots on the trail makes it easy for going fast. The trail meanders over and around short hills. Runs along a well travelled road and in sight of houses in a few places but mostly surrounded by pleasant mixed forest dominated by maples which provide cool shade for most of the trail. There are many side trails which make following the route confusing. Look for rectangular green paint blazes on the trees.
