Getting to Rochester Amtrak Station

Chark on Bikes from Brecksville OH on 7/1/2022 6:30:33 AM:
My wife and I will be riding from Buffalo to Rochester, then riding Amtrak back to Buffalo. Looking for guidance to get from the trail to the Rochester Amtrak Station. It looks like I can leave the trail and ride surface streets to the station, or continue on the trail to the Genessee River Trail, and ride that to within a few blocks of the station. We prefer to stay off streets- just more comfortable not having to deal with traffic and distracted drivers. I’m guessing some of you that follow this forum might have some insight, which I appreciate!

Search the forum for 'Rochester' and review my 5/27/22 post, it might be helpful.

I just did it in reverse. Google maps did take me on a few streets from the station (shorter distance) but you can get to the Genesee River Trail even closer. If you look at Google map you can prbly figure where to exit the trail to get over to the station. I think it was approx. a 1/2 hour ride.
