“Nice Trail”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Good walking/biking trail along the river. It's about 7 miles so kind of long for a walk especially because it's a single trail and you have to do an "out and back". I wish I had brought my bike, its easy off road and fairly level. Nice to do before wine tasting.

“Waterfall”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We only saw part of the trail -- one of the waterfalls, which was very nice. The trail section where we walked was nice and flat and easy to walk.

“Easy but great hike.”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

It is mostly flat, scenic as it travels by a stream. There are two waterfalls along the trail. It can be broken up into two nice segments.

“Easy bike ride or walk in rustic surroundings”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Running from Penn Yan, NY to Dresden, NY, the Keuka Outlet trail follows the stream that drains Keuka Lake into Seneca Lake. At one time it was a canal, then it became a railroad and finally it is now an easy trail with only two steep sections. Three times we have done the trail and each time has been a joy. There aren't too many folks but there is definitely a serene trip up and back - about 14 miles round trip - and not that difficult.
