Written Directions

Start your route in Hammondsport, NY (about 65 miles south of Rochester) and simply take 54A north for about 15 miles as it hugs the lake and takes you up to route's end point of Branchport, NY. Note: if you like that then you can continue around the lake by staying on 54A as it takes you into Penn Yan, NY and then you want to take a right on to 54 and head south along the other side of the lake all the way back down to Hammsport, NY.

Scenery

This route takes you for a great ride right along the shores of Keuka Lake. The scenery along Keuka Lake is one of the best views of wine country in the State.

Drive Enjoyment

Very nice road lots of turns, and updowns curves. Speed is slow for an enjoyable ride.

Tourism Opportunities

There are a lot of nice restaurants along this side of the lake . Boat rentals are available for fishing, skiing or just having fun for a day on the lake.

There are many beautiful rides in this area. A good option is take a ride along either side of Kueka Lake. Find your way to Branchport. Take the Italy Valley road west to Naples. Naples is a great place to get off the bike for a while. You can get anything from a slice of pizza to a nice dinner there. Then try Rt. 53 south through Prattsburgh and back to Rt. 390 in Kanona.

definitely go up the hill out of branchport, a the top of the hill is a bar if that's what your into, but right around the corner from the bar is Italy valley turnpike which is a nice road with some twists and hills. take the valley road to route 53 and take a right down into naples, after going through naples you have 3 choices, you can go up the hill towards Bristol springs and Canandaigua or take the low road and cruise along Canandaigua lake for a bit before rejoining the hill towards Bristol springs. Or the third and my favorite take rt245 out of naples and pick up rt 364, nice pieces of country highway with lots of twists and turns with a few small towns sprinkled along the way, its a very scenic route especially during the fall, rt 364 brings you back into penn yan on the north end of kueka lake, my wife and I ride this route often....

One of the best routes around the Finger Lakes region. Awesome scenery along the entire route. This route can be easily added to the "Cayuga Lake Tour" to make pretty full day of riding.
