Perry Springs Park was once a former water supply for the village of Manlius.  The spring now feeds Willow Brook, The Swan Pond and flows into Limestone Creek.  The site now hosts a hatchery and two short and easy trails.  The distances noted below are from the parking area.

* There are multiple trails within the park.  Unfortunately, I haven’t found an actual trail map with names or colors.  There are several forks in the trails as well.  There were some markers (like the yellow one pictured below) but not enough information to document at this point.

Mill Run Park is a really nice village park in Manlius. The trails are all easy and either paved, crushed wood or grass — all of which are well maintained and easily navigated.  The park also features the remains of a dam and dike.  A community park, this area also features pavilions, a ball park, volleyball, horse shoes and bocce ball.  Limestone Creek is a great fishing area and the limestone cliffs make for a great ambiance.
