Excellent Park with a fish hatchery, ski lift and miles of picnic areas. Heavily wooded and beautiful.

The park is nice, but we particularly like to visit the Fish Hatchery. Its great for kids, offers a mild educational experience, and allows them to feed the fish.

This park has been a favorite for years, especially the hatchery portion. There are plenty of trails, creeks, open spaces and playgrounds for the whole family.

Power Mill and the fish hatchery are wonderful places to get out of the city. There are so many places within 1hr to go in Rochester which is why I am only giving it 4 stars but it is still nice. My friends and I used to take our dogs all the time and because of the larger size, it... More

And many friends have used the various cabins for picnics and social events. But this past weekend my GF and I learned of... More

My grandchildren and I love to go to Powder Mill Park. We especially enjoy seeing the various size fish at the hatchery. The children love to get food from the special machines and watch as the fish all converge on the little pellets. It is a wonderful learning experience for the children; as we talk about what they do at... More

View the "Mushroom House" - It was actually supposed to look like Queen Anne's Lace. Visit the fish hatchery and feed the trout for 25 cents a handful.

Every small child in the area loves coming to Powder Mills Park, which includes a fish hatchery where rainbow trout are grown, for eventual release into ova streams. The park also has many trails and picnic areas, and at dusk herds of deer are very bold!

I love Powder Mills Park. Great place to have parties. Fun all year round. It provides a great backdrop for fall foliage, good trails for winter snow shoeing and cross country skiing. Kids enjoy the fish hatchery. Adults enjoy a peek at the mushroom houses. So much to do there!!

Powder Mill Park is a must if you visit the Pittsford area. Children enjoy the fish hatchery, and feeding the fish. My family likes the streams filled with trout, that wind throughout the park. Many hiking and skiing trails. Ckeck out The Devils Bathtub area, lots of steps though. It has great areas for a picnic. On your way in,... More
