Crescent Trail Guided Hike

The Crescent Trail is a system of footpaths within the Town of Perinton suitable for uses such as hiking, cross-country running, snowshoeing, nature study, and photography.  Approximately thirty-five miles of footpaths provide public access to wooded hills, Town parklands, scenic overlooks, the margins of wetlands, and other preserved open spaces. The Trail connects with the Erie Canal Heritage Trail and the RS&E Trolley Trail.
Most sections of the Crescent Trail are single-lane dirt pathways. A continuous, orange-blazed main trail is nearly completed – planned as a crescent-shaped route between the southwest and northeast quadrants of Perinton. Additional branch trails, loop trails, connecting paths, and access paths allow self-guided walks of up to two hours. Longer, half-day or day-long outings can be enjoyed as point to point hikes or by using connections with the Trolley Trail or Canal Trail. 
Many sections of the Crescent Trail are on private land. The continued use of the Trail and the opening of new sections depend upon users obeying posted signs and respecting the rights of property owners. If you see trash on the Trail during your hike, please pick it up and carry it out, to help keep our trail ways clean! Motorized and wheeled vehicles, including bicycles, are not permitted on the Crescent Trail. 

The next Crescent Trail Guided Hike is planned for August 13, 2017. For information call the CTHA voice mailbox at 585-234-1621 to leave a message or listen to a recording of the upcoming monthly hike, or send an email to crescenttrail@gmail.com.

Fairport Farmers Market


Its summer and that means there are great opportunities to enjoy savoring produce at the peak of freshness made available by area growers.  It also supports our local folks who grow this wonderful produce. There are many reasons to support your local Farm Market.

  •  The fruits and vegetables you buy are the freshest.  They are allowed to ripen fully in the field and are brought directly to you. 
  •  The food you purchase at the market reflects the truest flavors.
  • You can support our family famers by buying directly from them.  This gives them a better return on their produce.
  •  Food at a farmers market is transported a shorter distance and is generally grown using methods that minimize the impact on the Earth.
  • Most food at the market is minimally processed.
  •  At a farmers market you will find an array of produce that you will not see in your average supermarket. 
  •  At a farmers market you can find meats, cheeses, and eggs from animals that have been raised without hormones or antibiotics. 
The Fairport Farmers Market is every Saturday morning from 8:00-12:00 in the parking lot behind Bank of America, and Canal Landing. For a complete listing of all Farmers Markets in the area go to

Discover Stonebrook in Fairport!


At StoneBrook Townhomes & Cottages, the Crescent Trail is can be found directly across from the Clubhouse. StoneBrook has plenty of open space and also access to this gem of a trail system. The Crescent trailhead is clearly marked and given our mild weather, has been walkable or hikeable all winter. A short, hilly section on the StoneBrook property leads you over Thayer Road. Hiking a bit further takes you to the main trail. Heading south will hook in to the Jensen Stables & Horse Farm loop. What a beautiful vista you will encounter. So, if a sunny day is beckoning you to discover a new hiking trail, don’t overlook this gem right here on StoneBrook property.   
Before the Crescent Trail
Many years before the Crescent Trail was a footpath, and almost a decade before the founding of the Crescent Trail Hiking Association, the idea for the trail was "blazed" by a series of circumstances, decisions, and actions.

The Town of Perinton had experienced phenomenal development and population growth in the 1960's with more than 15,000 residents moving into the area. If the Town did not have a way to control growth and development, Perinton could become an environmental mess.

With changes in NYS law, in 1971, Perinton appointed 9 resident volunteers to serve as an Environmental Conservation Committee. They conducted an inventory of all undeveloped land and also recommended programs for the preservation of critical environmental areas. By Sept of 1971, they completed their inventory and began to serve in an official role known as the Perinton Environmental Conservation Board.

The Birth of the Crescent Trail
The large blocks of undeveloped land in the Eco plans report were mostly clustered in an arc extending between the southwestern and northeastern quadrants of Perinton. As members of the Conservation Board talked with landowners about Easements and LDDs, they came up with the idea of preserving the land -- in a way that would inter-connect many of the open spaces. The arc became the "crescent" and the objective was to create a footpath "trail" that would enable public access to, and appreciation of, Perinton's environmental legacy.
