Join us for a winter outing on the Canadice Lake Trail and try out your favorite winter equipment. Starting at the north end, the trail skirts the west side of Canadice Lake, mostly a wide and level easy surface. We’re hoping the trail will remain snow-covered, and we offer an out-and-back option or the chance to hike, snowshoe or cross-country ski the full four-mile length, with a ride back to the start. At about the mid-point, the lake trail joins Rob’s Trail, which heads up the hill, and any energetic hikers craving an elevation challenge can take that route as an alternative.
Please dress appropriately for the weather. Bring traction devices, poles and snowshoes if you expect to try Rob’s Trail. Otherwise wear good boots and poles, cross country skis if desired, and carry water with you. We’ll provide an update on conditions a few days before the hike.
Meet at 1:45 at the north end parking lot, Purcell Hill Road. Car Pool Drivers needed: We’ll need three or four people to volunteer to meet at 1:30 at the south end trailhead on Canadice Lake Road and leave cars for the return trip. Please leave a comment below if you can take at least 3 in your car in addition to the driver and gear.
Naturalists will hike south as far as they wish, and return to their cars. Tourists will hike the full length of the trail on the level (4 miles), and catch a ride back to the parking lot at the end. Climbers will hike as far as Rob’s Trial and then up to the top, returning the way they came – this is about 3.5 miles on the level and another 1.5 miles up and down.
The Social will be held at Honeoye Boat House Grill, 5226 East Lake Road, Honeoye
