Today is National Walking Day. To celebrate, we’ve put together some of our favorite walking trails around Rochester. Rochester is home to beautiful parks and trails, and we could all use an opportunity to move around and enjoy some fresh air after being cooped up indoors. Take a walk at one of these five locations for a great way to enjoy nature, get some exercise, and explore new areas while practicing social distancing.
Cobbs Hill Park
Cobbs Hill Park offers one of the best views of the city with 109 acres of trails. Take a few laps around the reservoir or workout on the hill. Pro-tip: this is a great spot to watch the sunset.
Genesee Riverway Trail
This scenic off-road trail runs right along the Genesee River and is the perfect path for walking, running, or biking. This trail extends from the Erie Canal to downtown to Lake Ontario so there are many sights to see and new places to explore.
Webster Park offers five trails, all varying in length, so there is a trail for everyone. The park also offers picnic tables and a fishing pier. Plan a peaceful outing to explore all that this park has to offer.
