The Corning Riverside Walk in Corning, New York is an easy 2-mile out-and-back trail that runs along the north side of the Chemung River and features views of downtown Corning and the surrounding mountains.

This track begins at William Street Park and heads east, following the Chemung River. The trail is mostly flat and during the warmer months, follows a very narrow path that can be somewhat overgrown to the sides. Along the trail are a few places to sit and relax.

Just before the trail reaches Bridge Street, hikers can choose to either follow the paved path over to Bridge Street or stay on the grassy trail and continue straight. This recording stays on the paved path, crosses Bridge Street at a crosswalk, and then continues on to the path. Hikers should note that the bridge at Bridge Street - where this trail crosses - does not have a crosswalk, so use caution.

After crossing Bridge Street, the trail continues on along the Chemung River until it reaches the Centerway Bridge Trail where this trail terminates. Before hiking back to parking, relax along the Centerway Bridge and take in the views of the river and surrounding mountains.

Views / Lookouts
This trail does not have any summit overlooks, but the views hikers get from the river banks are good enough to count as views.

Hikers can find parking at the coordinates provided, which sit at the end of Hillvue Ave at the William Street Park.

Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉
