The Jump Off Trail in Ontario County Park at Gannett Hill is ADA-accessible. It affords one of the most beautiful scenic views in the Finger Lakes Region, along with Harriet Hollister Spencer State Recreation Area overlooking Honeoye Lake.
This section below (CR-33-34-64-12-21) is my favorite scenic loop in the fall.
The Jump Off
Spectacular any time of year, my favorite time to visit is in the Autumn during peak leaf changing season. You’ll overlook CR-33/West Hollow Road and the backside of Bristol Mountain.
There’s not much to be said about the area specifically. It’s easy to navigate and the view speaks for itself.

Ontario County Park also has camping facilities (tents, RVs, cabins), two softball diamonds, two playgrounds, a basketball court, acres of open field (great for flying kites!) and a fishing pond.
Located in Naples, roughly 52 minutes / 40 miles from Rochester (get directions)

Rather than an escape, I prefer to think of these as transcending places that encourage us to transcend space, time, and state of mind.
