I think that Penfield should make this park permit only like beach parking on Cape Cod. The way this park is treated by people from the city on the weekends is nothing short of disturbing. They leave trash all over the place. I see where...More

The Channing H. Philbrick Park is a wonderful park because it gives you the feeling that you really are "back in the woods." The hike alongside the stream is flanked by steep hills on either side, and traverses flower-filled fields and wooden walkways over water....More

A unique experience at any time of year. Walking up stream or down is a surprising experience. Only in late fall or winter does the sound of Rt.441 intrude. An easy place to stroll and be transported to a peaceful and relaxing place. Alone or...More

Took the dog and kids along for a nice late day hike. The water level was high and made for a lovely and exhilarating atmosphere. Well worth the trip. There were also many people picnicing along the banks behind the open fields.

There are two sides to this park and be sure to explore both! The water runs through both sides (upper and lower) but the terrain looks so different! I hike there often and also am a photographer of people and bring many clients there. I...More

We see wildlife. The path through the park is easy to follow. We enjoy the scenery and love the Creek that runs along the path. Fishermen love it. We sometimes watch the salmon make their way up the creek for spawning. I have seen Daredevil...More
