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.

Very nice, we enjoyed our walk

Great, easy walk for the family!

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.

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!

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

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

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.

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.

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

This is a great place to walk your dog. Peaceful and pretty, usually several other people there.

Loved it! Hidden gem in the city!

Beautiful easy walking path and it's so serene and peaceful here. Filled with beautiful sounds of nature - crickets and other insects plus birds. We only saw about five people during the hour we were here. Nice and relaxing nature walk!

Scenic. Can get to the Steven B. Roman while unloading. Some trash from inconsiderate people.

great place for some history and beautiful views
