Why These Trails?

Seneca Trail – Starting at Valentown this trail is part of a historical footpath and is named for the Seneca Indians who had a main trail from Bare Hill by Canandaigua Lake through Ganondagan to Irondequoit Bay at least paralleling this trail. A varied trail with grass, single track, creek crossings, this trail will give you everything you look for in trail running.

Crescent Trail – The Crescent Trail is the home to our Tuesday morning trail runs. #TrailsRoc founders have trained for many races on these trails. With 35 miles of trails that are as well maintained as any in the Rochester area, we are sure you will love the experience of this trail system.

#TrailsRoc Gives Back: This race is a fundraiser for the Victor Hiking Trails -The Crescent Trail Association – and the creation of the #TrailsRoc Sponsorship fund.

The course starts and finishes at Valentown Historical Society Museum at High Point in Victor, NY.

      I was planning to drive two hours up from Ithaca this weekend to check out the course. Are the trails marked, starting at Valentown Historical building?
