Pratts Falls Park, located 15 miles south of Syracuse, is a great spot for some trail running. The highlight of the park is the 137′ waterfall. There are several miles of hiking trails. Most popular for trail running are the 2.6 mile North Rim Trail (yellow), which is a combination of woods and fields, and the 1.2 mile West Branch Trail (red), which also accesses the 0.6 mile Falls Trail. To really get the lungs going, run the stairs on the trail to Lower Falls.

Essentials
  • North Rim Trail: 2.6 mile loop; West Branch Trail: 1.2 mile loop; Falls Trail: 0.6 miles
  • Rt. 91 to Pratts Falls Rd.
