The right of way this trail follows is in its third reincarnation. It originated, in 1833, as the towpath of the Crooked Lake Canal. In 1844 it became the Penn Yan and New York Railway. In 1981 it morphed into the Keuka Lake Canal Trail and now is a year-round draw for hikers, bikers, and skiers.

The mostly flat, easy trail parallels the Keuka Lake Outlet, which flows between Keuka and Seneca Lakes. Along the way you'll pass waterfalls, old factories and mill sites, and remnants from the railroad days.

A map and description for this trail can be found in the guidebooks "Take A Hike - Family Walks in New York's Finger Lakes Region," "Take Your Bike - Family Rides in New York's Finger Lakes Region," "200 Waterfalls in Central & Western New York - A Finders' Guide" and "Snow Trails - Cross-country Ski and Snowshoe in Central and Western New York," all available through EMS.
