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 TrailMany 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 TrailThe 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.
