The Manchester Gateway Trail is a scenic route used by walkers and cyclers that follows the Canandaigua Outlet through Manchester. It has also been used for skiing during winter months. The trailhead has two points on its northern end; just off Route 96 on Main Street (Route 21). The point to the east off Route 96 includes a pedestrian staircase as well as a sidewalk from the intersection to Friendly Village-Manchester Park. The western point has a small parking lot just across Route 21. Once you’re on the trail, the natural scenery is very welcoming and relaxing. There are two interpretive kiosks; one where the trail crosses Clifton Street and another where the trail passes under an RR trestle just before getting to the end of your travels. This alternative 1.5-mile route going through the small town is a delight for all visitors. The trail terminates at Water St, just near the Shortsville line and Budd Park.
North Trailhead: Small parking lot on Main St. (Route 21).
South Terminus: Parking available on Water St. as well as Park Rd at Budd Park.
More parking at Manchester Village, about half-way down the trail.
