State to fund upgrade to Genesee River trail

Rochester Business Journal
September 5, 2013

The Genesee Riverway Trail will be upgraded and completed from the Genesee Brew House to the rim of the High Falls, where lighting will be added, thanks to $250,000 in state funding, officials announced Thursday.

The new trail will be called the High Falls/Genesee Brewery Line. The trail work will cost $200,000, officials said. The remaining $50,000 will be used for lighting to illuminate the falls.

“The High Falls area is one of our city’s most significant natural assets, and is tightly woven into the character and history of Rochester,” Mayor Thomas Richards said.

The project will complete a quarter of the Friends of the Garden Aerial’s vision for a trail that would circle the High Falls Gorge from the Pont de Rennes Bridge across the High Falls.
