Fabulous intertwining trail with plenty of elevation. The trails down to the Creek are steep but worth the effort. Fun to get off on a loop just to see where it leads. Be aware of bicyclists who don't know they're supposed to be on the west side. Great way to spend an hour or two on a nice Fall day.

My daughter and I enjoyed this trail. It was paved throughout and fairly level. Not strenuous but a nice scenic walk along the Genesee River. The bridge was nice as well.

Great trail! Pretty simple trail but love the bridge walk across the water.

Ok for a workout. But mostly a golf course. Nice lake view.

Fun and close! Trails are not well marked, so it’s easy to get lost without a gps. All trails eventually loop back around.

One of my favorite places to hike

Beautiful area to hike-- the first time I walked it, I got completely lost because the trails, while marked, are very confusing. They intersect many times and the colors are hard to follow.

The second time I hiked here, I used my phone much more, which helped me stay on track but robbed the experience of some of its serenity as looking down at a screen isn't an ideal way to be out in the woods for me.

I plan to familiarize myself further with these trails because it is a beautiful plot of land with good changes in elevation.

Great walk! Went from Turning Point up to the Port of Rochester for ice cream with the dogs.

This is my everyday trail and area. I love it. Peaceful and serene with beautiful sights and sounds. Great for daily exercise, walking the dog, or a quick hike.

Nice set of trails. Word of warning to watch your foot in if it just recently rained. Trails can be very slick and steep! Very nice walk with the dogs however! Definitely recommended for a nice trek and many trails to weave through! Also watch for dogs off leash apparently!

Somewhat overgrown and very muddy.Probably better earlier in the year and not after the rain we just had.Very buggy but gave a good workout!

Very nice, we enjoyed our walk

Great, easy walk for the family!

Nice trail and well shaded. Perfect for a hot summer day.

Take this trail from Boxart all the way to Ontario Beach Park and back! It is quite a walk, but enjoyable...I am guessing a little over 5 miles round trip.

Went running with my brother here last winter. Muddy as most of the trail is in fields. Would recommend spring/summer on dry days. Good for dog walking.

Great scenic trail with views. Beautiful area with a bridge that crosses part of the river. Hidden gem for sure!

Come here often throughout the year. Always a nice quick peaceful hike with great views.

Nice park with a variety of hilly areas. I thought the trails were clearly marked but I also referred back to the trail map on my phone. I liked the blue trail. I don’t think i’d take small children on the white part of the trial near the bay, as the one side of the trail drops off into the the bay. The only bummer was that there were some heavy industrial machines grinding trees on the other side of the bay and it’s was pretty loud (see photo). I think it was just bad luck that i went on a day where they were working.

Beautiful and scenic easy trail. A hidden gem in the area.

Parking at the end of Boxart. Not really a "trail" run but a beautiful run all the same.

Nice views great for family walks

One of my favorite places to hike locally - that and Abe Lincoln right around the corner. Great little bit of trail system going down to the wet area with some neat streams (people kayak through). A little hilly but that adds to the fun. I recommend this to anyone as there are ways to make it easier or shorter if needed, or enough places to explore around for a few hours.

Park at lot at the end Of Boxart Street and go north to the Lake and return. About 4.5 miles round trip. Nice river views and wildlife.

Love this hike! The trails are a little confusing at first, but there is always great wildlife encounter. The park is full of deer, chipmunk, squirrels, plenty of birds, and at the creek I always see turtles and frogs. This is a great hike during the winter too. You can really see the old rifle range with all the leaves gone. Typically, there is very little traffic, which could also be why I like this park so much.

Was able to walk to Lake Ontario from the parking lot and back. Very dog friendly park! Scenic views and even saw some deer.

Very buggy. Trails are marked but confusing. Was trying to loop and ended going back out on same trail. Would not do again.
