Schribner and Giles Roads (42.605,-77.541513) – Winter Directions

GilesRoadSignThese directions are being provided because Schribner and Giles are seasonal roads at the north west ends.  If you use your GPS, please be sure that you are coming up Schribner Rd from Tabors Corners Rd.

From Springwater: Head north on Rt 15A from the light in Springwater.  Take the first right on Wheaton Hill Rd (Co Rd 16).  Turn right on Wetmore Rd at the stop sign at the top of the hill.  At the end of Wetmore, bear right on Tabors Corners Rd.  After 3.5 miles turn right on Scribner Rd.  The driveway is the 2nd driveway on the left one mile up Schribner Rd and about 10 feet before the intersection with Giles Rd. Turn around at the intersection and park on the west side of Giles Rd.

From Wayland: From Rt 15, head east on Rt 21 toward North Cohocton for 3 miles. Turn left on Tabors Corners Rd (Steuben Co Rd 37).  After 2 miles, turn left on Schribner Rd (the second left).  The driveway is the 2nd driveway on the left one mile up Schribner Rd and about 10 feet before the intersection with Giles Rd. Turn around at the intersection and park on the west side of Giles Rd.

From Honeoye: From Rt 20A, head south on Ontario Co Rd 37.  At Canadice, continue straight ahead on Canadice Hill Rd as Co Rd 37 turns right. When Ross Rd bears to the right, stay on Canadice Hill Rd straight  ahead past Harriet Hollister Spencer Park. At the Springwater Town Line Rd, continue straight ahead on Wetmore Rd. Stay on Wetmore up over the hill to the end (total distance from 20A to the end of Wetmore Rd is 10.7 miles). Bear right on Tabors Corners Rd.  Turn right on at 3.5 miles on Scribner Rd.  The driveway is the 2nd driveway on the left one mile up Schribner Rd and about 10 feet before the intersection with Giles Rd. Bear right at the intersection and park.

From the East Lake Rd in Honeoye or From Naples: Rather than traveling north to reach 20A or Co Rd 37, hikers from east of Honeoye Lake may go south to Ontario Co Rd 36 and follow Co Rd 36 to Naples. Turn right on Rt 21 south.  Turn right to stay on Rt 21 for 4.5 miles to N Cohocton.  Turn right to stay on Rt 21 towards Wayland.  After 3.8 miles turn right on Tabors Corners Rd (Steuben Co Rd 37).  After 2 miles, turn left on Schribner Rd (the second left).  The driveway is the 2nd driveway on the left one mile up Schribner Rd and about 10 feet before the intersection with Giles Rd. Turn around at the intersection and park on the west side of Giles Rd.

Finally, for hikers who enjoy maps, it isn’t clear whether Tabors Corners has one or two s’s and if only one where it goes.  Google Maps calls the road Tabors Corners Rd in Steuben Co and Tabors Corner Rd in Livingston Co.  Bing maps calls it Tabor Corners Rd. everywhere.  The Springwater town assessor’s rolls contains all three spellings.

You also may see Schribner Rd spelled without the h.  I believe the h is missing on the road sign at the Strutt St end.  The 1872 county atlas shows P. Scribner living just north of the intersection with Giles Rd. (Of course it is J Guile who lives on Giles Rd)
