Join Jeanie Smith for a winter trek along the west side of Canadice Lake. We will meet at the north end of the lake at the parking area on Purcell Hill Rd. The trail along the west side is wide and easy and approx. 4 miles to reach the south end of the lake. Nice views of the lake all along the way. Canadice Lake is one of the smallest finger lakes and is forever preserved.
The trail will most likely be muddy so come prepared. Bring walking sticks, snacks, water. I will need a couple volunteers to get there 15 minutes early so we can move a couple vehicles to south end so we can all have a ride back to the start when we are done walking. Hike scheduled for 11 am so will need a couple people to come at 10:45 to arrange vehicles.
Directions are as follows:
Take route 15A south to village of Hemlock. Turn left onto route 20A. Right on Canadice Lake Rd. Purcell Hill Rd. will be a right hand turn. Parking area on left.
From Canandaigua: Take route 5 and 20 west. Turn left onto route 64 south. Turn right onto 20A. Left onto Canadice Lake Rd. Purcell Hill Rd. will be a right hand turn. Parking area on left.
There are no facilities at this location. There is a convenience store with gas, food and restrooms in village of Hemlock. There is also, I believe, a small restaurant in village of Hemlock if people want a meal after the hike.
This free event is open to members and non-members of Women Outdoors. Non-members are invited to join us on two events to see what you think. The third time's a charm - we'll ask you to join Women Outdoors at that point. You can join now by clicking on Join Us.
