This footpath joins the Auburn Trail twice, Ganondagan State Historic Site with its trails, the Seneca Trail, the Trolley Trail, and the Silverton Glenn community.
There are sections on sidewalks. There is a marked crosswalk on NY444, the Victor-Bloomfield Rd. In woods it is 2- to 3-feet wide on a dirt or grass surface; and in Ganondagan it is wider on a driveway and in meadow.
The yellow branch connects with the Auburn Trail at the crossing of Proximity Ln. (Ketchum St.) It was built in June '22 as a Scout Eagle project by Xander Bhalla.
The blue branch through the glenn was originally created by the home developer, Morrell Builders. In October '22 it was graded on the hill by Twin Elder Brewery and extended north to the Trolley Trail enhancing the connectivity of several trails.
It can also be part of many different loop hikes. The Ganondagan trails offer many opportunities. It, together with the Auburn and Seneca Trails, offers another.
