we canoed for over 4 hours on the Genesee river...right up to the city skyline! it was a tremendous experience, and not very costly...friendly staff, and great deals for future trips! beautiful scenery, we could bring food and drink with us, it was a great time!

“The great biking and running trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

It follows the Genessee River up by the University of Rochester, then into Genessee Park and continues for another two miles in great nature surrounding. Unfortunately to connection with the rest it (down to the Pennsylvania border) must be made over a busy street. It also connects to the Erie Canal trail and soon should connect to the rest of the trail up (on the map, down in altitude) to Ontario lake.

“A great view and fun, different trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

The entire greenway trail that I've seen so far has been nothing but entertaining. I've taken the greenway trail from Scottsville Rd into the city of Rochester by bike, and I've walked it towards Scottsville the opposite direction about a block or two away from Scottsville road. The trail is never over crowded outside of the canal, and it's a different view of the Genesee river along Scottsville road. Personally, I just enjoy going behind the businesses on Scottsville road and seeing them from a different angle! And sometimes you'll catch people playing paintball in the back of one of the plaza's as well. (so if you hear popping and see people shooting from behind a netted area, don't worry, there's a paintball course behind the net)

if you have a bike this is the place for you. Biking or just walking was great.

“walking the trail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2012

You can go as far as you would like. I walk in the Scottsville area. The only thing I don't like is that there is no alternative other than to turn around and walk the same trail
