I like this trail. Lots to see outside. It isn't a hard trail so don't worry. I see lots of dogs. There are old building foundations to walk around which is cool. There are no lights.

We took the trail even though it was chilly but we enjoyed every step. It is a lovely walk and everyone we met on the trail was friendly. Interesting things along the way: ruins, little falls, beautiful scenery.

Enjoyed the walk - so nice listening to the water flowing as you walk along the trail. We walked but also saw people jogging and riding bikes along the path.....and several dogs on leashes accompanying their owners. The trail is handicap friendly meaning that use...More

Really enjoyed the well groomed trail. Had many side trails to explore closer to the water. The little waterfalls were a great treat along the way. There are several benches for sitting along the trail and the old rail bridges were fun to look at....More

This is a well maintained gravel walk along the outlet from Skaneateles Lake. It has views of water falls and fast moving streams. Your dog is more than welcome as well as bicycles and those walking for the enjoyment. It is shady and cool during...More

This is very nicely kept and a great place to jog or walk your dog. Nice quiet path to relax and enjoy nature.

This is a nice trail, however it really needs to be better maintained. Dead trees everywhere. It could be very beautiful if it was properly managed.

As a resident, I have enjoyed this walk for years. When our children were young, it was a walk we could all do. Even in winter when you are desperate to get out, this is perfect. I recently walked the trail on a sunny fall...More

We enjoyed this trail after visiting the Last Shot. It's a very short, very flat path that follows a little creek. Lots of stone walls and ruins of buildings past. Don't need special gear, shoes, or be in shape! It's a great little side trip...More
