What constitutes a family friendly trail?

Well, the answer depends a lot of the family to which you are referring. Are there small children? Are there hyperactive children? Are there children with short attention spans? Are there older children?

Or, perhaps the family has no children at all. Families are diverse. TakeAHike.jpg

That’s why you need the guidebook called Take A Hike – Family Walks in the Rochester, NY Area. No matter what your family looks like, or what their abilities are, you’ll be able to hone in on some trails to suit their needs. Indexes in the back of this guidebook help you quickly identify trails by length and difficulty groupings, as well as ones with special characteristics.

Have you got someone in a stroller or wheelchair? There’s an index of trails for that.

Maybe you want to find trails that lead to a waterfall, ones with educational opportunities, historical aspects, or maybe just trails with a great view.

How about trails with a horticultural flair, or trails to view wildlife or farm animals. Indexes are provided for each of these.

For a change of pace, maybe your family wants to go horseback riding, bike riding, or cross-country skiing. You’re in luck. Indexes will point you to appropriate trails. We’re fortunate. The Rochester area has a wealth of varied trails.

The third edition of Take A Hike – Family Walks in the Rochester, NY Area provides maps and details for 67 trails, helps you select ones that fit your family perfectly, and provides all the information you need to have an enjoyable outing.
