Thomas R. Frey Trail at El Camino
Pat describes the trail’s history

This 2.25-mile linear hiking and bicycling trail runs along the Rochester Running Track’s abandoned railway bed that stretches through various Rochester residential and industrial neighborhoods north to Seneca Park. It provides easy access to Conkey Corner Park, Seneca Park, the Genesee Riverway Trail, the Avenue D Recreation Center and Buena Vista, an Ibero-American Senior Center.

Construction of the trail, which follows an abandoned CSX railroad right-of-way, was finished in the spring of 2012.  It was developed by the City of Rochester in partnership with Genesee Land Trust, a non-profit organization that connects communities to nature and protects local land and water.

The Thomas R. Frey Trail at El Camino connects to the Genesee Riverway Trail, a scenic multi-use trail which runs through Rochester from Lake Ontario to the Erie Canal.  The Genesee Riverway Trail is a designated National Recreational Trail, and connects to both the statewide Erie Canal Heritage Trail and the Genesee Valley Greenway Trail, which continues south along the Genesee River.
