Irondequoit Lakeside Multi-Use Trail Description

The Irondequoit Lakeside Multi-Use Trail is currently open in two disconnected segments: one going east-west through Irondequoit and the other going north-south through Rochester.

In Irondequoit, the trail follows the shore of Lake Ontario from the Irondequoit Bay to the Genesee River, providing scenic views of the area’s three major waterways. The path, built on a former railroad bed known locally as the Hojack Line, passes through the northern end of Durand Eastman Park, a beautiful stretch of woodland with sloping ravines, wildflowers and a lakeside beach. To continue the journey, trail-goers will find a signed, on-street connection to the Genesee Riverway Trail at the trail's western end.

The Rochester segment picks up at Seneca Park Avenue and traverses Seneca Park along the heavily wooded eastern bank of the Genesee River. On its southern end, it connects to the El Camino Trail, which continues south another 2 miles.

Parking and Trail Access

Along the central southern Lake Ontario shoreline, there are a few beach and trail access parking lots located within Durand Eastman Park off of Lake Shore Boulevard. There are also approximately 10 parking spaces near the trail on Sweet Fern Road just west of Culver Road.

Irondequoit Lakeside Multi-Use Trail Reviews

This is a great trail once you hit the beach stretch. We started in Stutson plaza and the first mile and a half was just walking along the streets. Then when you get to the park area it opens up with tremendous views of the lake. Easy to walk down and enjoy the beach and come back up on the trail again. Next time we would park at the beach and just follow up to the Culver road area. But a really beautiful walk!

Stutson Bridge Plaza is a good place to park a car on the west end of this trail. The street address on the trail directions takes you into the marina area which is private. We had no difficulties following the trail with the combination of our printed map from this site and the signs. Trail was lightly used by walkers, joggers, and bikers on an August Sunday morning. We enjoyed the combination of city streets, wooded area, and beach. Will be back to do this again.
