Indian Hill Recreation Area

The whole point of this blog is to help you get outside in the Fairport NY and surrounding areas. But it’s not just to help you, it’s to help me get out there more frequently too. For that reason I’d like to introduce to you a new post series and personal project.

Welcome to Saturday in the Parks.

It’s no secret Perinton has a ton of parks. Everytime I drive down a road I’ve not previously been on I run into a new park (sometimes even more than one). For as long as I can keep finding new parks to visit (and when I’m not out of town) I’ll be featuring one here every Saturday.

But wait, there’s more!

Not only will I be featuring the park, I’ll be posting on location! Combining two things I love: technology and the great outdoors.

This weeks park is the Indian Hill Recreation Area. It’s not so much a park as it is a hiking paradise.

When you’ve reached the picnic table you know you’re at the top.  The last time I came up here I thought it pretty much ended at the table.  However; after talking with Jeff and hiking along with him for a while I realize this section of the Crescent Trail is HUGE.  Several loops, lots of fields, a great place to hike with the kids or the dogs.  There are a few wet sections in the trail so if you decide to take the kids make sure they’re wearing their crappy sneakers.

The farthest I got to (thanks to Jeff) was a spot I could view the grass-roofed house from (which is pretty cool by the way).  I think the next trip to this place might be a little longer and I’ll be exploring the rest of the trails at least as far as the next road.

The locations of the recreation area, the parking lot and the trails can be seen in the Instamapper GPS Track I made below.

Have fun out there! And if you get a chance, check out the grass roof house!

  1. ‘HDT’ as you call him… Talks about Simplifying your life and living with the bare minimum. Even he only did this for a brief period of time and acknowledges that certain tools have their place.

    I like to view technology as ‘tools’ rather than simply desires. Every piece of technology I own is used as a ‘tool’ to accomplish some goal. Even my XBox 360 Gaming Console was purchased primarily to eliminate the ‘need’ (extreeeeeemely loosely labeled as a need) for cable.

    I appreciate the comment and understand what you mean, although I respectfully disagree.
