“Scenic Running”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I love running along the Riverway Trail. On my last run, I switched over the other side of the river. Not only was it beautiful, it was also very peaceful. I recommend the Trail for running & walking.

“Wonderful riding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We used the Genesee River trail to get us from the Erie Canal to our hotel in downtown Rochester.

Very nice, scenic trail and ended about a block from our hotel.

“Great for Biking, Walking and, Running”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

There are a few solid trails in the Rochester area and this is one of them. Great for biking, walking and, running. A few of the markings are a bit tough to follow but overall it is a great riding train.

“A Nice Walk with a few Interesting Stops along the Way”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

A bit hard to follow/find in places, especially where it's interrupted by construction, but generally a nice trail. The little museum and gift shop at the High Falls Center is definitely worth a stop, especially for kids (located just north of the High Falls overlook, on the west side of the river).
