Since 1979, the Crescent Trail Hiking Association has led monthly hikes to share our love of nature, educate hikers about the history of Perinton, and encourage all to be good stewards of our natural surroundings.
Monthly hikes are always the 2nd Sunday of the month at 1:30pm, unless otherwise noted.
