Running Rochester


A short trip for work gave me the chance to do a short run in Rochester, NY.

I took off down the Genesee Riverway Trail, which runs alongside the Genesee River, through Genesee Gateway Park. The path goes under the Frederick Douglass–Susan B. Anthony Memorial Bridge, then runs south further than I had time to go. I was interested to see that there were ladders down to the river at regular intervals all the way down the east side of the river. I am curious whether people swim in the river all the summer or if they serve another purpose.

The path passed by houses and apartments, then became more wooded before–presumably–it opened up again near the University of Rochester. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to go very far, but I loved what I saw. If you are ever in Rochester, I recommend checking out the Riverway Trail.
