WAG Trail

Well maintained, clean, easy to follow. The scenery was beautiful and peaceful. My dog and I had a wonderful run along a 4 mile stretch of this path and will definitely be back.

Sunday hike

Nice in town hike with pretty scenery once you get past the start.

WAG Trail

Always something interesting to see

January, 2021 by zmq35ny7xp

I've been walking this trail almost daily for 3 years and it still hasn't gotten old. I've seen rabbits and chipmunks, osprey and eagles, hawks, vultures, so many different song birds and waterfowl, as well as a few fox and loads of deer. It amazes me how quiet and secluded it seems despite being close to roads at times. My favorite stretch is between York's Corners (Mapes Road) and Graves Road. The majority is just mown grass so expect mud, ice, etc depending on the season. Bugs can be an issue in summer, especially deer flies.

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

close to home

January, 2021 by lynloman

I live close to one of the sections of the trail so I walk it with my dog often. But we also venture out to the other parts. I’ve actually done all of it twice with many sections much more. It’s a great trail for walking a dog. There are some really beautiful parts and I am looking forward to seeing them through all of the seasons.

Jim Schug Trail

Pretty trail, level, great for a family with smaller children

October, 2020 by tlsfenner

Easy to find; we parked in Dryden Park, nice picnic pavilions, playground. We only walked 2 miles, and the trail was very well kept, clean, nice and wide. Great for younger kids, strollers, dogs.

Keuka Outlet Trail

excellent trail, beautiful scenery

October, 2020 by trichbtch

This is a definite must for you! We loved the ride.

Catharine Valley Trail

Beautiful trail

October, 2020 by qv4im3izkn

Very nice bike trail, but poor signage thru Montour Falls. To make it easy: if you are facing the Falls on Genesee St, go left about 6 blocks to Cook. Turn left on Cook and just beyond the city’s DPW site is the trailhead south to Millport. The sign is not seen as you come down the street and we actually went right by it the first time, but it is on the right immediately past the DPW site. The route to Millport is beautiful so it is a shame to miss it when you can’t find the trailhead. It is gradually uphill to Millport so it makes for a very nice ride back. Hope this helps!

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

Great trail for an easy somewhat quick ride

September, 2020 by kbg32

I did this trail on a grey day. The ride was flat, not technical. I did flat about 5 miles in due to a huge thorn. There were lots of debris from trees due to recent storms. My in-laws live here and this trail was the perfect length in distance and time for a ride to get away for a bit. I rode my gravel bike with 40mm tires which was perfect. I only passed two people walking dogs and a couple of other cyclists on hybrids on my return. I would just caution people that there are a number of road and farm road crossings. Definitely slow down and stop to make sure no traffic is coming.

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

Great Trail For Walking But Needs Benches

September, 2020 by baqzp7dgsw

My husband and I hiked this from Stanley to Canandaigua and just loved it. Mind you, it’s September and the manure smell wasn’t bad at all at this time of year. We have been walking a trail a day to raise $ for a charity and are up to 9 rail trails so far and over 144 miles to date. This was by far the easiest and kindest to our feet! Lots of soft, well maintained grass and also mossy areas in shadier places. Again, this was from Stanley to Canandaigua. I’d listen to other reviewers for the Phelps side of the trail. BTW, the Stanley to Canandaigua side has the delightful Pooh Corner signs, at least 12 or more! It could use more benches...there is only one.

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

Definitely mountain bike material

September, 2020 by ddylla

Ontario Pathways is mostly single track and grass with occasional spots with gravel and stone dust. It is well maintained in terms of mowing and trimming back trees but would definitely suggest using a mountain bike if cycling on either leg of this trail. The trail goes through rural forested areas and pretty farmland. Canandaigua on the west terminus offers the only services on the route.

Lackawanna Rail Trail

Not real scenic

September, 2020 by crmorgan1

Asphalt smooth. River and some wetland views but not that impressive. Worth the ride on asphalt.

Catharine Valley Trail

Good trail

September, 2020 by crmorgan1

Nice smooth trail. Park in marina area at Seneca Lake and follow signs. We might have missed a sign and ended up at Fairground road. Turn left and trail was about 100 yards away. Loved it.
