“Relaxing views”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

A nice walkway along the Genessee River, the trail is well lit and has sidewalks. In early spring, there were still piles of snow and debris from winter, but in spring and summer, I'm sure it will be a nice way to get some air.

“Nice daytime trail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2014

Very nice scenery and marked trail. The boardwalk that extends over the Genessee River is fantastic. I would not wander this trail alone as it is too close to the city of Rochester and sometimes there are questionable characters on the trail. The closer to city center, the scarier it gets. Stay away at night. Great for biking too.

“Great walking locations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 February 2014

Great places to walk along the river. Try from the Rose Garden area north or the portion by U of R south.

“Not all of it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

I'm too old to do it all. Walked the Pier at Ontario Beach Park, sailed the Mary Jemison on the Erie Canal, saw the lower river below Corn Hill and High Falls. Totally awesome! What a neat place is Rochester!

“Pleasant walk.”

We started at RIT and took the trail north to Corn Hill. Very nice walking trail. I have lived in Rochester for 13 years and never been. Would recommend to others.
