Lovely place for a walk. One leg of the trail winds up at a distillery. Highly recommend this as part of a visit to Skaneateles.

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.

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
