Seneca Park Rochester NY

Does anyone know if a bike trail runs from the park to Pattonwood Dr? There's seems to be a hard packed dirt trail on the west of the park heading north.

There's the pedestrian bridge that links the park to the trail. I don't know if there's another one. It would seem easy enough to ride the trail and see if there's a branch that goes down to the park.

Well, got around to checking out what is what. To keep it simple, I started at the river and worked up to the park. Check map http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=226993

For the most part, the path is pretty much a goat trail within the old R.R. right of way up until the finish point. Large gravel, roots, hard packed dirt and grass. Mountain Bike path for sure, but I did it with 400c on my hybrid, so it not to bad. No Tour de France speeds

At the finish point you will find a fence with a partially chain closed gate, enough room to get the bike through. This path is wide hard packed dirt, small stones and runs to the road at the North end of Trout Pond at Seneca Park. Nice nature run, ran into a doe on the goat path.

If you skip the the goat path and take Seneca Park Ave at the chained gate to St. Joseph St. You'll find a long fairly steep grade that runs most of the length of Van Voorhis Ave to Thomas Ave. A killer for my wife at this point, so the goat path is great. heheheheh
