GPS: N43 11.241 W77 37.389 (Seth Green Trail – Parking)

04/16/2010 (Kevin) – This was our first visit to this spot.  You can expect to do a little walking to get from the parking area to the water.  Under the bridge on the Genesee River to the Seth Green Trail parking lot is approximately .5 mile (each way).  However, there is a steep decline/incline, approximately 300′ at 45 degrees at the base of the trail.  The rocky shoreline can also be a little bit tricky to navigate along.  The water is very deep and fast in parts.
