Cross over Irondequoit Creek and head up the hill. Turn left on Lincoln Mills, left on Linden then right on Bluff. Turn left into Eyer Park. Take the trail over to Midvale – turn left. Turn right on Baird, left into BOCES, then take the trail around the back. Turn right on O’Connor and then right on the canal and back to the basin. Distance is 13.5 miles.      

(Turning left on Linden from Whitney and then left on Bluff Dr. makes the route 11.8 miles)

(For 16.4 miles – on the above route, stay on Five Mile Line Rd across 441 to Whalen. Turn right on Whalen, then right on Baird, right on 441, and return to the main route. )      

For a longer option with trails – on Whitney at Linden – go under the bridge along the creek to pick up the Linear Park Trail. Run this all the way down to Panorama Plaza. Return back up to Linear Park and then follow the usual route back. Distance is 15.3 miles.
