I went on an 85 and sunny day and it was great! I walked the orange trail, my lab had a great time and so did I, it is very dog friendly. There are a lot of bugs but bug spray did the job

Great hike. Long and strenuous enough to feel it, but easy enough to enjoy the scenery and the walk itself. I highly recommend it!

Perfect spring day for a hike and this trail didn't disappoint. Hiked with my 3yo and 4yo and they were able to navigate. Glad to see it wasn't muddy!

When I lived in Rochester, this was one of my favorite places to go walk. Sometimes, I'd walk out to the Abbott's in Bushnell's Basin and back!

Nice little oasis away from suburbia. Plenty of trails with a fish hatchery as well!

a nice pleasant hike. Very nice scenery and quite. I will definitely be back.

Short but nice Trail. Great for bird watching

Peaceful walk in the woods. We parked at the Garnsey Road lot, and hiked on the south side. The trails are very well marked and well maintained. The Orange trail has lots of ups and downs. We hiked the Orange trail to the overlook and returned by way of the Blue.

Nice trail. My 3 year old son was able to navigate the inclines and descents of the orange trail.(w/ a lil help) So peaceful walking through the woods.

The hardest part of this hike was figuring out where to park/start walking. Most, if not all, of the trailhead markers in the park were unlabeled when I visited last week.

this is a short trail, but peaceful

It's great when you aren't being stared at. I just want to enjoy my hike. Let's not make it weird as if brown ppl don't hike

Hard? No. This is a really easy short hike anyone can do. Unless you're talking about the short steep decline from the top rim.

Very easy walk.

Nice and clean trail to walk on. Great part was all the shopping and restaurant you can stop by in town area.

I park at Garnsey rd, head south. Have done the south portion 3 or 4 times in fall and winter, never the same route. Once went all the way to Moseley rd, past the Woodcliff hotel where there is a nice overlook / photo spot / helicopter pad (ok probably not but it looks like one). Good elevation change, will get the heart rate up if you keep up a good pace. Taking/harvesting a couple walking poles/sticks helps get the arms and back into the workout on the hills and helps with the occasional slippery spot. Expect to spot the occasional deer, and at least a few friendly fellow hikers. Yes you can hear I-490 from pretty much the entire trail but that also serves to establish your bearing if you need it. Not sure how to get out? just walk toward the road noise, or downhill (same result) and then go right and you'll end up back at the Garnsey rd trailhead. This is about the only trail I've found in the area with a good amount of up and down (a few in Powder Mill Park have steep hills but are smaller and shorter). All in all a nice 1 to 2 hour hike.

Awesome! Deer everywhere.

Decent hike. Could hear cars from the highway. Pretty difficult to find parking. We eventually parked at the crescent trail entrance on Garnsey Rd. Orange trail was nice and led to the overlook of Bushnell Basin.

Nice quick hike

If u follow the orange trail, not a loop...plan on a long out n back. Marked very clearly for first few miles, then not so much. A good workout, plenty of steep ups n downs. Overall a great hike.

Easy, dog friendly hike along Irondequoit Creek. Especially worth a visit in the spring when the daffodil's are in full bloom. Photos of our hike along this trail here: http://mydoglikes.com/powder-mills-park-daffodil-trail/

Sucked. Forgot bug spray and got eaten alive. Gave two stars because the trails were nice, steep at times, but well marked. There wasn't a map on location so I wandered pretty aimlessly. Probably wouldn't go back, not any nice sights.

Nice trail but the traffic noise from I90 ruins it a little bit.

I had a hard time finding a place to park but when I did ( I parked at Kreag Rd. Park ) it was a great hike! Like other people mentioned- very hilly!

Beautiful leisurely bike ride that collides with wonderful places to eat and drink!

We walk these trails from lock 33 towards Schoen Place and back and it is breathtaking in every season.
Also the kayaking around Fairport Lock 30 is highly recommended.

Good trail. One of the better marked trails in the area. You can get 5 miles easy if you do the ENTIRE southern portion of Crescent trail down to Moseley rd and back. We actually started at Moseley and went up past Garnsey then turn around after realizing if we went all the way to Kraeg Rd it would've been more like 10 miles.

Steep hills! Super fun!

You have to cross Garnsey and do the north section to Kreag Rd to get 5 miles. We usually just do the South climb to the view at the Woodcliff. It's neat to see our neighborhood across the valley, plus the view of Rochester is unique. Would rate it at moderate since it's not flat.

Beautiful area, and friendly people Were the highlights. The trail has decent trails that are well worn due to the fairly high traffic through the many short hiking trials. The difficulty label of Hard is inappropriate because the climbs were not challenging enough for this rating. To achieve any distance you will have to continually intertwine trails, while retracing your steps, or doubling back over, no fun. I thought that it would have been much more challenging than it was. I left disappointed.
