Easy walk on an elevated railroad bed through the Ridgeway Swamp or the Willseyville Creek Wetlands. Great location for birding or a short bike ride. This is a snowmobile route (S25)in the winter time and is maintained by the Spencer-VanEtten Snowmobile Club. It is a flat straight line from Ridgeway Rd to Wilseyville Rd but you can park at the trailhead parking lot for the Finger Lakes Trail and take the FLT into the swamp where it joins up with the old rail road bed for a short bit before heading up to White Church Rd and to Shindagin Hollow.
