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 trail would be great for a family with young kids. I look for a little bit of difficulty to reach wonderful views, and that wasn't something that existed here. The trail is very well maintained (and too busy for my taste). The only thing I will remember about walking this trail was that in a moment when I was away from anyone else for a brief period, a Doe walked out of the woods and slowly approached me. It was a beautiful experience, but I'm a bit wary of any circumstance where a wild animal approaches people. I spooked her off and went on with my day.

Love the little fairy houses. The nature center was very educational.

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

Definitely not a hiking trail, it's primarily gravel path with sections of concrete in more popular areas. Enjoyable to walk/run/bike along the canal. It's not a forest landscape but does have trees offering shade in sections. Expect to see lots of joggers, some bikers and often dogs. Well maintained and easy for all ages. Can get ice cream in either village afterwards, or in Bushnells Basin in between.

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.

Completely surprised - I drive by this park all the time and just thought it was a jogging trail. The trail through the woods was very well maintained all the way through. if you're looking for a easy short walk look no further!

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.

Fantastic for kids -- lots of fairy houses to discover...

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.
