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 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

Enjoyable, relaxing, well-maintained, easy walking. The best parts are the ruins of the mills and places where the water was channeled or damed up. Keep your eyes open for these things on both sides of your walk. Take the small "detour" to the Last Shot...More

It was a little tricky to find, but we're glad we did. It is a walk/stroll, not a hike, but really enjoyable. I highly recommend you do the web-based guide that is advertised on the path - it made the walk so much more interesting....More

I love this walk. The Charlie Major Nature Trail is .8 of a mile long. There is only one trail. There is a small playground at the Crow Hill Rd./RR St. entrance. Our black lab just loves the trail. Just be sure to... More
