Start your route in the town of Horseheads, NY and simply take Route 14 up to Watkins Glenn, NY ... 15 miles one way. Turn around and head back to make it a nice 30 mile roundtrip.
Along this lovely little route I traveled the other day, there are many interesting sights to see. Some of these include rivers and marshy areas, waterfalls, a large lake (Seneca Lake), steep rocky cliffs and if you are lucky some wildlife ... I saw some deer Photo contributed by visitor in Jun 09 - "Wagner winery and their Ginny Lee Cafe."
The path has many twists and turns and only an occasional rough spot. Unfortunately there is some road construction right now (Jul 05) so that is a minus. Over all I greatly enjoyed my ride and think that you will to if you give this one a try.
This route lies on the way to Watkins Glen State Park. You can fish, swim at the park, camp, and boat if you are with a party that has access to one. Also several restaurants dot the way and once in Watkins Glen you can go to the racetrack.
