The Seaway Trail’s thriving metropolis of Rochester is situated on the southern shore of Lake Ontario where the magnificent Genesee River – dubbed the city’s lifeline – ends its 160-mile journey into Lake Ontario, creating a captivating and spectacular waterfront for the city.

A historic center for civil rights and social justice, home to abolitionists Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony, drawing visitors from all over to such places as the Susan B.
