It was rideable last year between Huberton and Rochester. A few bad spots here and there. This winter they'd looked to have made a mess of it along East canal road between Brockport and Route 260. Just west of route 260 running halfway towards Brockport. I haven't been on it trail yet, so I don't the condition from Rochester and Hulberton right now.

Update. The west end of the trail is closed a Fayette st in Brockport. The east end at Sweden Walker Rd has a sign saying "rough trail ahead" Heavy equipment was moving all along the trail between these points. I didn't see and work going on between Sweden Walker Rd and Henpeck Park in Greece.

Just biked from Henpeck park (Greece) to Sweden Walker Rd. The path is still closed from there to Brockport. They've run a tracked wheeled vehicle from east of Adams Basin to Spencerport. There's now 2 rumble strips embedded along parts of the trail. Otherwise same as I remember it from fall.

Had a operation last week and I'm off the bike for six weeks (groin hernia). But, did a car recon. Brockport still closed from Sweden Walker Rd to town. No idea what on going west from there. Look's ok from Henpeck park to Sweden Walker. Around May 1 I tried to ride from Huberton to Greece. Bad. The first mile east leaving Huberton was a wreck. They've scattered Railroad size ballast rocks all over the path. Then it's ok to Holly. The same size rocks were dumped from Holly to Bennetts Corners Rd overpass. Ok from there to County Line Boat launch. Started going to hell a bit from here to Old West Ave. Unrideable from there to Redman road. Had to walk the bike to Rednan. Didn't look any better east of there. They may have screwed the path for good, for fast bike riding.

Hopefully they get it restored before the big ride across the state in July!

Hey, wanted to do the trip from Medina to Rochester and back on 6/30 I see there may be some parts closed? will that be done by 6/30? are their alternatives to get around the closures? Also, was planning on taking a road bike...is it paved that strech and if not is it in good conditions (I have 23 tires that aren't horrible on good hard pack trails) Thanks

Mark, I don't believe there's anyone on this site has any insight on what will be fixed and open. I also ride a road bike on the canal and in the past it's been ok. The only long paved section starts at Long Pond Rd in greece and ends at Pittsford. I won't be back on my bike until about the time you'll be coming so I won't have any new first hand knowledge to share here. If you have to bail off the canal after Holly Route 31 is a good choice, wide shoulders and you can ride it past the section that was or is closed in brockport, then to the Sweden Walker Rd canal entrance. That was fine to Greece on my last ride.

 
MarkMeyerson from Arlington, VA on 7/1/2019 5:10:20 PM:
medina to brockport is 100% open now did a 50 mile round trip 6/30 loose dirt on some of the new sections will slow you down a little, but still in great shape

 
Bop from Rochester on 7/1/2019 6:07:25 PM:
Thanks for the news Mark. I generally ride from Greece to Huberton, then the lake.
