Beautiful view of lower falls and old RGE building. Lived in Rochester for 25 years and didn’t know this was here. Can park by YMCA and walk down and back in 10 minutes.

Great hike. Cool ruin type structures along the way. The trail was roughly a mile longer than the original listed mileage. Lots of chipmunks.

Poorly marked. Started off by following blue trail. At one point blue just stopped showing up. Luckily this app has a map or I’d still be in there

Great trail with no mud today. Steep climb from the north side from the creek. Excellent views!

Great ride with Paisley

Very nice. Some parts branch off into more rustic areas that feel like you’re out into nature. Saw many colorful songbirds, deer, etc. Boardwalk makes for a unique trail. Not buggy or muddy for late May. One star lost due to the traffic/moderate crowds and lots of trash thrown into the river. However, would come back again.

Nice running and biking path. It’s really busy on weekend days and can get hard for bikers. Parking lot nearby is big though for drivers.

Good easy, dog friendly trail. Lots of birds to be seen. The top of the lake is a golf course so it is a little unclear how to get to the other side of the trail. That portion is also a little muddy.

As others have said, a nice interesting walk - though not much of a “hike.”

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

Whewwwww

Went here for a hike today and loved it! Easily followed trails and many options to make the walk more difficult if desired. Definitely suggest!

Hiked 04/10/20. Decent hike for all levels. It was muddy in some spots, but that’s to be expected for Spring time in Rochester. It had some nice views over the water.

Brought the kids and the dog here to walk today and loved it! The art/graffiti is beautiful for photos! Overall a great place!

My sons and I went for a Sunday afternoon walk on the Linear Park (Philbrick Park) trail and were delighted to see such a beautiful and surprisingly powerful creek winding its way through the woods. It is during the pandemic so a lot of people were out since there's nothing else open. There was a lot of wildlife (fish, birds, chipmunks and squirrels) and a few anglers were wading in the wide sections of the water. We hiked the lower trail by the water's edge but we could see other hikers in the trail that overlooks the water. I'm just now getting my sons into hiking so this is a good starter trail for new enthusiasts. The sound of the rushing water was worth it. I never knew there was such a lovely little park so close to the roads of Penfield. Because the trail was so short, after we finished it I drove them to Mendon Ponds Park to walk the Birdsong Fairy Trail and loop around to feed the birds from our hands (I planned ahead and brought black oil sunflower seed). It was the first time they'd done that and they loved it. Combined, those two trails wore us out. Mendon Ponds was about a 20-minute drive from Philbrick.

Generally very easy. Well-maintained, easy to find and follow the trail. Not too busy.

One of my favorite park settings that offers not only great views but also decent hiking, great cardio/workout opportunities, and cool stuff to find in the woods! Plenty of space on the hill for picnics, easy trails, well maintained, pet friendly. Visit often!

Still muddy!

Would have been great if it actually kept us on a trail and not continually making us walk on and through the golf course. Very confusing at times.

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.

We had to go north of “trail” onto the golf course lawn in order to not swim that part of the trail
