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

Nice area and cool waterfall. We brought our dog with us and had to carry him due to large amounts of broken glass, fishing hooks, and litter. If you stay on the paved part it's okay but otherwise make sure you have closed toed shoes and I wouldn't suggest bringing your dog down to the water's edge.

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.

Nice easy hike! Nice views. There is one area that is a bit tricky if you have limited mobility, as it is a staircase that is not well taken care of but it is short. Did spot some poison ivy along the side so be cautious.

uneven but good trail

The trails aren't exactly marked well. The overlook trail really needs some help, vandalism is apparent once at the top of the hill. Definitely will want some bug spray, couldn't keep the flies off my poor pupper.

very nice easy trail.

I live close and walk this all the time with the dogs. Please leash your dogs as there is a lot of traffic in the area!

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

not a bad hike was mostly paved walkways. you can go off the beaten Trails but signs all over saying not to go down there ! was a very nice walk or hike! park is nice and the rose garden is beautiful ! I will be back to hike around some more !

cool view. fun breweries and downtown bars, and the bridge out over the river is fun, but the river trail is sporadic and messy

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

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.

I would hardly call this a "hiking trail". Parking lot is sketchy and in a bad area. From there the "trail" goes down a paved roadway until you get to an RG&E facility that generates hydro electric power. The falls are cool to see and there appears to be a cave across the river. The mapped trail in the app takes a right hand turn before the falls and has you follow the river for a while. Trash litters the trail along with fishing line, syringes and condoms. You can cross the river to an "island" but I had to turn around when I got to a homeless camp. Would only go back to figure out how to get into the cave.

The falls were really pretty. The trails were covered in garbage, syringes, used condoms. Homeless tents everywhere too.

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!

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!

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

The bugs were awful when I went and I ended up tying my shirt around my head to keep them out of my ears! It is a pretty trail though, and I didn't see anyone else on the weekday I was there. I saw some very cute little frogs the size of my pinky fingernail.
