Honeoye Lake View Winter Hike

January 22, 2023 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

This Sunday we will explore the woods and fields overlooking Honeoye Lake on the west side, followed by a dish-to-pass social at the Affolter farm.  Meet at 5422 County Road 37, about 2 miles south of Route 20A and 2 miles north of Canadice Town Hall.  Park in the drive or on the road shoulder. Our hikes will take us up the ridge, through wooded trails and along gully rims.  Get a new scenic vista of the whole expanse of Honeoye Lake, from a new and different perspective. 

Climbers will head northwest from County Road 37 through the woods toward Curtis Road and Howcroft Road to make a loop of about 3.5 miles.  Tourists and naturalists will start out on the same route, but with a slower pace on the initial uphill climb, and will complete a smaller loop of about 2.5 miles.  Hiking conditions should be good, with light snow possible, but traction devices and poles are recommended in case of ice. 

Bring your favorite goodies along for our social at 5422 County Road 37. 


From Springwater, take Route 15A north 2.7 miles to a right on Johnson Hill Road.  In 1.1 miles, make a left on County Road 37. Continue northeast for 6.7 miles, including a turn to the left after Canadice Town Hall.  #5422 will be on your left, just before you leave the town of Canadice and about a half mile after you pass Hayward Hill Road and Jersey Hill Road. 

From Honeoye/Hemlock:  Take Route 20A east from Hemlock or west from Honeoye to the intersection with County Road 37. Go south approximately 1.9 miles. #5422 will be on the right, just past the Entering Town of Canadice sign.
