Washington Grove Cobbs Hill Park Professional Review and Guide
"This hundred-acre urban wilderness walk leads to one of the highest points in Rochester, where you’ll find the area’s best view of the city skyline.Is there no limit to the gifts George Eastman gave to Rochester? When the city approached Eastman in 1908 to fund construction of a reservoir at the top of Cobbs Hill, Eastman consented with a condition: The city must preserve the hundred acres of mature woods adjacent to the building site. The city agreed, and this forested haven has drawn neighbors, dog walkers, and bird lovers to its heights ever since. The crisscrossing network of trails through this hilltop woods are more confusing than the park’s size might imply."
