Thomas Creek Wetlands Walk cover

Thomas Creek Wetlands Walk

Most folks when visiting Fairport walk along the canal path not knowing that the Thomas Creek Wetlands Walk is running parallel to them. 

The Wetland Walk is actually two separate paths. One is paved yet rustic. The other is a boardwalk with a seasonal viewing platform. They both connect to each other and with the Erie Canal Trail.

The boardwalk

I discovered Thomas Creek Wetlands Walk looking at a satellite view of the area on Google Maps. At the end of Liftbridge Lane East is a small parking lot.

You can also park in any of the municipal lots around the canal and tie this short trail in with a larger canal experience.
