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

I thought it's was very fun and fairly easy. Great for mountain biking.

Very nice, we enjoyed our walk

Great, easy walk for the family!

Paved walkway. Nice view of the lower falls. Some broken bottles in the area so be careful of your footing. Take a quick walk across Driving Park and check out the rose garden and its beautiful blooms.

Trail let’s you hike out of the noise in the rest of the park. My dog loves going in and out of the creek!

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.

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

Picturesque, with lots of historical value as well! Especially beautiful in the fall!

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

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

This park needs some maintenance! (I'm hoping it's because I went in winter and it will get cleaned up in the spring). There were trees down across the path - some climbing over/crawling under. The left path is super steep...watch out if it is muddy or icy (I'd recommend that most people avoid it under these conditions) but you do get some really nice views. I'll try this one again in summer/fall to see if it got cleaned up

Decent trail. some of the bridges could use some attention. It was muddy the day I visited but it was still a pleasant walk. I would visit again.

I started in the parking lot behind Panorama Plaza and the trail is not that pretty (behind businesses and an apartment complex) until after the 441 bridge, which is where Linear Park/Channing Philbrick Park is. The trail is well marked and has red blazes while inside the park. This trail is busy! It was very cold and drizzling and I saw at least 10 people. This would be good stroll with kids but I prefer less foot traffic. The trail just ends randomly (see picture). I would recommend starting at the park, not at the plaza like I did.

One of my favorite Rochester mtn biking parks. GROC has done a great job maintaining these trails. I also frequent these trails for running with my dogs

The start of the overlook loop from coyotes den is very steep. My dog and I did a great job getting up it but I was nervous for him! It’s a beautiful view once at the top.

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

Nice views great for family walks

If you are here for scenic views, be disappointed. If you are here to see nature and beautiful forest and wetland, look no farther. Birds sing, even late in the year. Deer bound across your way, and it is beautiful. A heron takes flight from the marshes and settles down again a distance away. Bring hiking boots, due to the mud. The trails are easily accessible, and at this time of year, the trails are mostly clear, save for the odd person Nordic walking the trails. However, the trail length of 7.5 miles is misleading. I followed the purple, then the green trails, and it came out to something like 4.0 miles. If you hiked all of the trails together, including the red and blue, you'd probably come out to 7.5 miles. Overall, though, it's definitely a place I'd come back to again, for hiking, birding, and just watching wildlife.

Beautiful paved loops, and opportunities to go off-trail to explore over 10,000 plant varieties. The nearby Lamberton Conservatory is also worth a visit.

Awesome, historical space. Great elevation making this a tougher run or walk. Everything is paved road.

You get a glimpse into the better days of Rochester, back when when the city was prospering. Would definitely recommend.

I love the walk in the park.Enough variety..hills, scenery and steps.Feels like a good stretch when done.Some areas are isolated so I drag the husband along.

Good shade, not too tough. Bring a fishing pole!

Great trail took my 5, 7 and 13 year old kids. They did it easy.

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