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.
