Trails: Creekwalk Phase 1 – Sullivan Park Green Trail
Distance: 2.6 miles / Difficulty: Easy

A recent partnership was created between the Village of Chittenango, The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, The Town of Sullivan and several other volutneers and groups to bring a series of interconnecting community trails to the Village of Chittenango.  The project has been named “Creekwalk”.

In October of 2009, phase 1 of a proposed three phase plan was completed.  This first section of trail connects the parking area on Route 5 to Russell Street.  It’s a short .38 mile handicap accessible trail that travels along Chittenango Creek.

11/14/2009 (Advgirl, Chinook) – This was our first visit.  We parked at the trailhead for the newly completed first phase.  There were some “Vision Plan” brochures and an information board indicating information about the project.  The initial part of the trail is handicap accessible and runs about .38 miles to Russell Street.  We then walked about a block on sidewalks to the entrance of Sullivan Park.  There were red and green trail markers in the park and we opted for the green trail which was around a mile long.  Again, the trail was crushed stone and well maintained.  It brought us out in a residential area and another 1.2 mile walk along Route 5 (sidewalks the entire way) and back to the parking area.
