They’ve got to be kidding …. I came across this scout.me web site, first for Syracuse NY trails. I noticed you could search for any location, so I selected Rochester NY as a city whose trails I have intimate knowledge. It started off well, offering the Genesee River Trail, Greece Canal Park Trail, Isaac Gordon Nature Park Trail, and Tryon Park. OK, good trails – no maps provided – but good recommendations. I kept scrolling down to find Island Hopping In The Cyclades, Greek Island Wanderer, and Greece: The Southern Coast all listed as being in Greece NY!

There is a Greece NY and it has nice trails, but these places happen to be in the country of Greece – far from Rochester NY. So, this web site has good intentions, but as with many – it doesn’t know what it’s talking about. Stick to local guidebooks – written by people who know the area they’re covering – you’ll even get maps. You can find many for NY state at footprintpress.com.

According to Adventure Journal,  “We don’t know a whole lot about Native Shoes, save that they’re, uh, unique. And they’re big in Japan, which you shouldn’t scoff at, because lots of nifty, niche brands here exist by charging mega yen over there. Still, even their “boot,” the Fitzsimmons, strikes us as strictly urban wear, what with its unbreathable rubber upper and unlugged sole. But we’ll cut them all kinds of slack because we’re suckers for creativity, and this indie flick about how the Fitzsimmons came to life (highly un-factual), is silly, amusing, and just the kind of promo we wish there was more of in the “outdoor” genre. The message: It’s okay to have a little fun. They’re just boots.”
