From Start, head NE along E edge of parking lot at Salt Museum, bear R onto S. Willow St. Pass entrance to Plot, turn R onto unnamed park roadway along N side of parking area for Visitor’s Center. Pass P-lot for skateboard park. Turn R and then immediately L onto unnamed park roadway which leads to yet another parking area adjacent to ball-field and Bloody Brook outlet. At S end of this Plot turn R, passing through an open gate onto Shoreline Walking Trail, which is a paved path along the Onondaga Lake shoreline. Follow this path to junction where it merges with the East Shore Recreation Trail (ESRT) directly S of Salt Museum (Junction A on the map). Continue to follow the ESRT as it curves north. Turn L to continue on ESRT (about 20-ft wide now). Continue on ESRT, passing painted marks 0.25 – 1.25 miles. Turnaround at the location designated on the map. Retrace steps to Junction A, and bear L to stay on ESRT. Finish at Start line by passing through open gate separating the trail from the parking lot. Avoid the bollards!
Marked by manhole on E side of a grassy island in SE corner of parking lot for Salt Museum. S/F line is aligned with center of manhole, perpendicular to the E edge of P-lot.
