Enjoy “National Trails Day” With A New Trail

Posted on

Many of us love and train on the Crescent Trail – Many of us love and train on the Victor Hiking Trails Seneca Trail.  It’s too bad there is no way to connect the two systems with a nifty little line of single track –

Well – There WAS no way to do that – There is now.

A long term vision with collaboration from the Victor Hiking Trails and the Crescent Trail Association with help and input from #TrailsRoc has allowed for a completed  connector piece of the Seneca Trail.

The construction began with the fine folks from the VHT in early May and ended with a trail clean up day organized by #TrailsRoc in which we picked up 14 bags of trash. Please see the maps and images and video and enjoy the new trail!

The new extension begins at The North Face in Victor and heads up to High Point/ Constellation Brands- It offers huge climbing opportunities following the power lines up or down near Turk Hill Road – It  follows beautiful newly created single track  between Turk Hill Road and LaSalle Parkway which will connect you with ease to the Crescent Trail.

The new extension gives runners the chance to add lots of mileage to their long runs or new opportunities for Hill work, single track and exploration of new areas.

A big THANK YOU to VHT for making this a reality – The new section was vital in making the 0 SPF a much more trail friendly and sustainable trail race.

So what are you waiting for? Get out there and get dirty on our new trails!
