A Pathway

September, 2017 by kshell

The Ontario Pathway is exactly that; a pathway. It is a wide grassy path with a narrow-worn bike path. I was not expecting such a primitive trail. It is a beautiful trail that is under a canopy of trees that travels through lush farms. On our ride, the weather was great but the trail could be a problem in wet weather.

The Ontario Pathway seems to be lost in time. I felt I should have been riding a balloon tire Schwinn instead of my hybrid. It was a great experience but a little more strenuous that we expected.

Compared to other trails we have ridden on with our mountain bikes this one was very dug up and rocky.

Cayuga-Seneca Canal Trail

excellent and a beautiful trail

September, 2017 by hschler

This is a uniformly wide trail of hard packed stone and very little elevation change. 80 or 90% in the shade due to the very thick canopy running next to the canal that connects Seneca and Cayuga Lakes. The water itself is in view about 30 or 40% of the time and it is gorgeous. This will be a great trail to ride in the fall, just a few weeks from now. Note that the actual mileage is 4 1/2 miles and is really only accessible from the Waterloo entrance. Very large parking lot right next to one of the locks. Note that will be instructions say that you go down half Street after going over the bridge from the north, there is no Huff Street sign at the corner of Route 96 and 12 Huff but there is a round Cayuga Seneca trail sign pointing the way. Once this route connect to Seneca lake state park it will add about three more miles for a total of 7 1/2 one way or 15 round trip which will be great. Seneca Lake State Park and the Geneva waterfront are fully along the north end of Seneca lake right on the water

Keuka Outlet Trail

Great for Walking, Not so Great for Biking

September, 2017 by harvey.botzman

As other reviewers have noted, this is an absolutely beautiful shaded trail. It is slowly, ever so slowly, being developed by a not-for-profit organization of volunteers. These volunteers need someone to help them prepare grant applications to New York State's current method of funding, the Consolidated Funding Application as well as to private foundations making grants in New York State's Finger Lakes Region.

Without a significant infusion of funds this Trail has no chance of reaching its potential as a major tourist destination as well as an outstanding recreational facility for residents of Yates County.

Walking the trail is a wonderful experience biking it not so wonderful.

Some sections of the Keuka Outlet Trail are now single track and double track trail surfaces. Fine for walking, not good if you are bicycling on an non-suspension bicycle. The Penn Yan Rotary & other organizations have placed very nice benches along the KLOT/KOT.

I bicycled the entire Trail on a folding (20" wheels & tires with a well defined but not mtb tread) touring bicycle without suspension but I'm a very experienced bicycle who wears well padded bike shorts!

The Keuka Outlet Trail is much smoother, even in the gravel and single track sections than the NPS's C&O Trail between Cumberland MD & Hancock MD.

I recommend the KOT or KLOT as a walking trail with much to see (waterfalls, remains of mills) and admire along its route. Go to the Yates County Chamber of Commerce office for a map & brochure of the Trail. Make a contribution to the "Friends of the Outlet, Inc." to improve the trail surface. There are "lock boxes" along the Trail for you to make contributions but a nice sized check would certainly help.

EPCAL Alternative Transportation Path

NOT A WELL MAINTAINED PATH

September, 2017 by petercap81

This trail should not be advertised as an 8.5 mile trail for walking. The first section is paved and well maintained. After the paved path ends, you are hiking through tall grass and often you question whether this is really a path or if you are actually trespassing. It usually feels like you are trespassing and blazing your own trail. Eventually, my wife and I abandoned the path when we came upon River Road and a hole in the fence. It was not worth the hassle to try to keep blazing our own trail. The dead, decaying deer in the middle of the path sealed the deal for us. We found our own way back through Enterprise Park. If this "trail" is intended as a publicly owned and maintained walking path, then it is falsely advertised as such. The path is probably great for mountain bikes if you enjoy pedaling through tall grass. AVOID UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE IN FOR.

Ontario Pathways Rail Trail

Beauty for the eyes, torture on the nose

September, 2017 by ihammerhands

Ran from the trail intersection and Freshour Rd to Canadaigua YMCA. Beautiful tree canopy made sun protection unnecessary. This portion of the trail was about 50/50 wide enough to run on the path vs. in the grass.
About 3/4 had a taste in the mouth manure smell. Not sure time of year, wind direction or weather its a common occurrence.
