Honeoye Lake is the most shallow (only 30 ft deep!) and the second smallest of the Finger Lakes.
The lake is just 45 minutes from Rochester, and you can drive around the entire lake in 30 minutes. Like Conesus, the lake freezes completely in the winter.

Head up Canadice Hil to Harriet Hollister Spencer State Recreation Area for one a spectacular view!
There is another scenic overlook toward the northeast on NY-20A, but the lake itself is less visible.

Rochester railfans are incredibly lucky that passionate preservationists before us saw the value in retaining structures we can still appreciate today.
Water trails are either formally marked routes along a navigable waterway, or simply any waterway suitable for kayaks and small motorized watercraft.
