We walk these trails from lock 33 towards Schoen Place and back and it is breathtaking in every season.
Also the kayaking around Fairport Lock 30 is highly recommended.

Beautiful park with a great walking trail. The trail features various fitness tasks you can do, a playground, and walkways through a marsh. Great for kids (one section of the trail has fairy houses the kids can look for). It's also has a little garden where you can read books from the pop up library by the museum that is there as well. A fun and enjoyable experience for my family.

Good trail. One of the better marked trails in the area. You can get 5 miles easy if you do the ENTIRE southern portion of Crescent trail down to Moseley rd and back. We actually started at Moseley and went up past Garnsey then turn around after realizing if we went all the way to Kraeg Rd it would've been more like 10 miles.

An easy family friendly group of trails. Very scenic even with no leaves on the trees. We will be back for a summer and autumn hike.

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.

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
