Town Installs Benches on RS&E Trail

July 28, 2021

Our community is known for outstanding recreation opportunities, including an extensive network of trails. One of our most popular is the RS&E Trolley Trail, which spans about 5-miles in total from the northwest to the southeast parts of Town. Over the past few years, the Town has worked to rebuild the RS&E Trail and add parking areas. This summer, Public Works crews added three new benches along the trail. The benches were reconditioned and repurposed from the Village of Fairport, which reduced project costs. These repurposed benches are located at the trailhead parking areas near Pannell Road, Victor Road, and Hogan Road.

The RS&E trail is frequently used for running, walking and biking, and offers a variety of activity options, such as skiing and snowshoeing in the Winter. The trail is also accessible to those with wheelchairs and strollers, and is ideal for all skill levels. By also utilizing the Erie Canal Path, RS&E Trail-users can go from Eyer Park in East Rochester, to the Village of Fairport, through the Hamlet of Egypt to Pannell Road. We encourage everyone to get outside and enjoy a great day on the trails this summer!
