I grew up visiting this park for baseball games my brother played in and us sledding in the winter. Never took walks until I was older and realized how much you could see and enjoy. Monroe County Water Authority has their main offices there and the county's largest water reservoir is there as well. Very tranquil area. There are some... More

About .7 miles around the top of the reservoir with a wonderful view of the city and the hills to the south. Get up in the air and get some exercise, cooled by the water of the reservoir.

Cobbs Hill is mainly a city reservoir for drinking water. It also has a terrific view of the city skyline. You can drive around on the road or park and walk on the grass or just sit and take in the view. The best time is at sunset on a clear day. The parks in the city all have an... More

The Cobbs Hill Park in Rochester is a gem for the city. There is a reservoir located here also. Visitors can garner a great run, or walk around the reservoir and catch a fantastic view of the City from above as this park is located on a elevated plateau. There are also tennis courts, and picnic areas here in addition... More

A nice view, but a complete lack of corn cobs for sale on the hill made this a sad trip. Perhaps set up some vendors and a butter stand.

This is one of the best places I know of to get a full beautiful view of the city of Rochester. It is also a great place to run or take a walk. It really is a hidden gem.

great view of the city, great sunset, a good place to walk or jog around the fresh water basin. The Hill is close to downtown, a freat place to go and relax in the middle of the day and to takea short stroll around the basin. Also good trails around the park.
