Indian Hill Section - Crescent Trail

7053-7121 New York State Bicycle Route 5
Perinton, NY 14450

The Crescent Trail is a system of footpaths within the Town of Perinton suitable for uses such as hiking, cross-country running, snowshoeing, nature study, and photography.  Approximately thirty-five miles of footpaths provide public access to wooded hills, Town parklands, scenic overlooks, the margins of wetlands, and other preserved open spaces.  The Trail connects with the Erie Canal Heritage Trail and the RS&E Trolley Trail.

Most sections of the Crescent Trail are single-lane dirt pathways.  A continuous, orange-blazed main trail is nearly completed – planned as a crescent-shaped route between the southwest and northeast quadrants of Perinton.  Additional branch trails, loop trails, connecting paths, and access paths allow self-guided walks of up to two hours.  Longer, half-day or day-long outings can be enjoyed as point to point hikes or by using connections with the Trolley Trail or Canal Trail. 

Many sections of the Crescent Trail are on private land.  The continued use of the Trail and the opening of new sections depend upon users obeying posted signs and respecting the rights of property owners.  If you see trash on the Trail during your hike, please pick it up and carry it out, to help keep our trailways clean!   Motorized and wheeled vehicles, including bicycles, are not permitted on the Crescent Trail.
