My first time walking on any trail and I loved it. Very relaxing.

Took my daughter on her first hike here and it was great.

The bridge is very cool but most of the trails are overgrown with vegetation.

Trail is well marked on the east side of the bay. The west side of the bay is not marked at all and you will have to walk on the road twice if you chose to hike the loop. My recommendation is hike south from the beginning of the bay by MacGregors bar and as soon as you hit the road turn around and hike back, don't do the loop.

I hiked this trail today. While some parts were really scenic, the trail itself is a mess. There is one section that is well marked, but the remainder requires a lot of guessing as to which paths to follow, and there are many turn offs around. I used this app to keep me on the trail, and good thing I did, otherwise I would have been lost. At one point the trail dumps you in the parking lot of McGregors on Empire Blvd and you need to walk close to a mile on Empire Blvd to get back into the woods. Dangerous and definitely not scenic.

I love this place. Never crowded. So peaceful. My pup and I enjoy our time whenever we go.

Much more overgrown than it used to be with the cattails. Blocks the view sometimes. Trails are well marked though with a map at every intersection so you have to try hard to get lost. Don't forget the bug spray!

You actually start the trail in the Veteran's Memorial Park (Penfield Town Hall) near the amphitheater. The beginning of the trail splits off in many ways which all lead you around. The main trail is poorly marked and needs some work but overall and easy flat terrain. I had to duck under and move quite a few pricker bushes. The west side of the trail was more clear. The trail is good for a quick short hike but I got bored after the second loop. I walked a mile and a half and that included looping around more than once and exploring another side trail that led up to a backyard.
