Written Directions

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.

Scenery

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."

Drive Enjoyment

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.

Tourism Opportunities

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.

Took this route coming back from a long road trip that started in Galway, NY to Hershey, PA and home again. Started in Corning, NY around 4:30 on Sept 8 and arrived in Geneva, NY around 6:00. The wind was gusting around 25pmh and it was very cloudy spitting rain all the way. We've actually run this route a couple of times before when the weather was nice. The scenery is wonderful, especially the run up the west side of the lake.

Don't cut your ride short, continue north up Rt 14 along the west shore of Sennaca Lake to the town of Geneva, from there you can take the east side of the lake back to Watkins Glen. There is very nice scenery on both sides of lake.

I have ridden this route many times and it is typically slow to very slow due to traffic.
