Sandy Bottom Park Hike or Honeoye Lake Bike Ride

April 21, 2024 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Sandy Bottom Park
36 W Lake Rd
Honeoye, NY 14471


Come join us for a hike in Sandy Bottom Park and its adjacent creek, or a bike ride around Honeoye Lake!

We will meet at 1:45pm at the parking area of Jack Evans Drive at Sandy Bottom Park, (which is located at the northwest corner of Honeoye Lake) off County Road 36 (West Lake Road), about .4 mile from Route 20A/Main Street Honeoye.

Hikers will explore the nature trails and wetlands of Sandy Bottom Park.

Cyclists will circumnavigate the lake counter clockwise, first heading south on County Road 36 for about 8 miles to the intersection with East Lake Road, then heading north along the east side of the Honeoye Valley. At about the 12 mile point those looking for a breather may visit the Honeoye South Boat Launch for a stop (with rest room) by the lake. Continue north on East Lake Road to Route 20A (Main Street Honeoye) and return to the start by Main Street and West Lake Road. Total distance is about 17 miles of gently rolling terrain, with the biggest climb near the start. An alternate course is available for those looking for a shorter and easier ride of about 12 miles; this will circle the lake part way going in the other direction, through Honeoye and down East Lake Road to the South Boat Launch and back. Cyclists may go at their own speed; please bring plenty of water.  Bike helmets are required.
