Brickyard Trail Description

Brickyard Trail offers a pleasant north-south route through the Town of Brighton, which sits on the southeastern outskirts of Rochester. Its name is a nod to the town's brickmaking industry dating back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and the trail runs through a former clay mine.

The route begins at the Sandra L. Frankel Nature Park, across from city hall and the library, and winds south through woodlands and wetlands for just shy of a mile. The stone-dust pathway ends at Buckland Park, which offers many recreational amenities, including athletic fields, playgrounds, basketball and tennis courts, and a large picnic pavilion.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available on the south end of the trail off Westfall Road; the trailhead is adjacent to The Landing of Brighton, a senior assisted-living facility. You can also park and access restrooms in Buckland Park (1341 Westfall Road).

Access the north end of the trail at Sandra L. Frankel Nature Park; parking is available across the street at city hall and the library (2300 Elmwood Avenue).
