I took my dog on this hike right after a big rain storm and it was extremely muddy pretty much the entire "hike." I parked at the state park entrance and paid the $5 parking. From there the hike is more like a walk -...More

If you only have time for one hike on Lake Ontario, you must take the time to hike at Chimney Bluffs State Park in Wolcott. Located about an hour between Syracuse and Rochester, it's a little out of the way, but well worth the extra...More

Went for a hike at the park on a beautiful sunny day. The mile long hike along the beach is pretty strenuous. Walking in loose rock can't be difficult. The walk back along the trail above the bluffs was fantastic. EXCELLENT way to spend a...More

No. I saw people prepared with swimming gear and maybe they went into the water, but this is not intended. No beach or lifeguard.
