You have to cross Garnsey and do the north section to Kreag Rd to get 5 miles. We usually just do the South climb to the view at the Woodcliff. It's neat to see our neighborhood across the valley, plus the view of Rochester is unique. Would rate it at moderate since it's not flat.

Beautiful area, and friendly people Were the highlights. The trail has decent trails that are well worn due to the fairly high traffic through the many short hiking trials. The difficulty label of Hard is inappropriate because the climbs were not challenging enough for this rating. To achieve any distance you will have to continually intertwine trails, while retracing your steps, or doubling back over, no fun. I thought that it would have been much more challenging than it was. I left disappointed.

Erie Canalway Trail (Pittsford to Spencerport)

I like to bike (or walk, if I'm too lazy to load the bike in the car) the canal any chance I get, and this is one of the best sections of it. This stretch is mostly flat and gravel covered, perfect for walking, jogging, or biking, but probably a little too rough for rollerblades (do people still rollerblade?), though it does tend to be paved around the towns. This stretch is heavily used, especially on weekends, but the trail is wide enough that bikes can pass pedestrians easily and safely.

Excellent trail - We're prepping for hiking Mt. Marcy and wanted to train on a local trail with some elevation. Very nice nature trail with good trail markers. Not sure where the five mile loop distance came from - maybe we missed something. We really enjoyed hiking this trail - we'll definitely come back...

A million Mosquitos- and we wore bug spray. Trail was not well marked, got off trail on a road to try to limit mosquito exposure. Walked Thornell then into a neighborhood, then cut through school to Park Rd. won't attempt again until winter

Trail is mowed paths through a field that connect to a woods trail next to the creek. Bring bug spray. The mosquitoes were horrible.

Very Hilly and Windy Trail that you can feel like you are lost when really you just need to keep walking and you will eventually find the Woodcliff Hotel or the parking lot off garnsey where you started. Great for walking dogs (even though they are on leash)

Only found one spot with a decent view but still a great hidden gem.

I have both walked, biked and in-line skated (when I had the ability) this trail for years. The parts between Pittsford and the city are paved and have some hills, but is generally easy to navigate and pretty flat for long stretches. There are all sorts of sights to see and the path gets fairly heavy traffic in spring, summer and fall. It runs through towns and parks and there are places to picnic and/or restaurants in walking proximity to the trail.
Once outside the city headed toward Spencerport, the path is gravel. For the bird lovers, there are some nesting herons along this path, lots of ducks and some migrating geese. Along parts of this trail, I've seen rabbits and fox too, but they are generally in stretches that are well outside Rochester.
