Seneca Lake: One of New York’s 11 Finger Lakes
Seneca Lake is the deepest of the Finger Lakes with an estimated volume of 4.2 trillion gallons, roughly half of the water in all of the Finger Lakes. Seneca and Cayuga lakes are so deep their bottoms are well below sea level.
You can drive around the entire lake in 120 minutes.
Follow Rt. 14 just 3 miles south and visit Montour Falls, home to several more waterfalls, including one of the most photographed, Shequaga Falls. As you’re heading back toward Rochester, stop at Watkins Glen Farm Sanctuary for a tour.
COVID-19 NOTE: Please follow the most current recommendations from the CDC and New York State for spending time away from your home.
The great outdoors can provide a well needed respite & escape during stressful times. Please move quickly through parking lots, trail heads, and scenic areas. If crowded, choose a different park, trail, or time to visit. Please day trip responsibly and locally—seek solitude!
