Charlie Major Nature Trail This 0.8 mile pathway along the Skaneateles Creek is the former site of the Skaneateles Short Line Railroad and water powered industries. Look closely and you'll see remnants from the days of the railroad and the industries that once thrived there.

There is a nice area to picnic along the creek at the north end near the Crow Hill Road Bridge (the Mottville Trailhead) and a playground at the Mottville Trailhead for the kids to enjoy.
