Best Winter Walk in the Finger Lakes

The Finger Lakes are beautiful year round. Each season brings with it its own special treats. In the winter sometimes the weather lightens up and just demands that you get out and move your feet. Our Innkeepers have some great suggestions on where to enjoy a winter time walk as they offer their thoughts on the best Winter walk in the Finger Lakes.

Lamberton Conservatory in Highland Park - To go from the winter wonderland and 2 foot of snow in the park to a pathway lined with blooming spring flowers is a joy to both eyes and nose. Then enter a jungle with a flowing stream, orchids blooming, exotic plants and bananas ripening on the trees. Next comes a desert with multiple varieties of cacti and a Zen garden and waterfall. It is a delightful way to spend a winter afternoon. The Conservatory is open 10:00 to 4:00 and charges only $1.00 per person. Located on the southern end of Rochester. ~ Glenda Nash - Gentle Giants Bed and Breakfast

Waterloo Premium Outlets - my favorite walk no matter what time of year is wondering between the many stores at the Waterloo Outlets. I love to go in and out of the stores checking out the sales. There are so many different types of stores and so much to see that you really forget about how much exercise you are really getting. ~ Robin & Michael Grentus - A Wolfpack Bed 'n Breakfast

Levi Corser Park - It's located right around the corner from the inn. It has a paved 1/2 mile track that's plowed in the winter. The air is fresh and clean. It's frequented by deer and rabbits. After walking several times around, I reward myself with a go on the swing and a nice hot cup of cocoa. Located at the corner of County Rd 32 and Route 64 in Bristol Center on the West side of Canandaigua Lake ~ Sheryl Mordini 1795 Acorn Inn

Village of Hammondsport -There are plenty of quaint little gift shops and an old fashioned ice cream parlor as well as a neat little gazebo that is extremely photogenic covered in snow.  You can walk to the lake which is usually not frozen, and if it is really cold out, you can stop in at the Village Tavern for a Hot Toddy or a nice glass of wine to warm your bones. ~ Terry - Keuka Overlook B&B

The Keuka Lake Outlet Trail - We tend to favor nature related walks in the winter and so our recommendation is the old trail that runs between Penn Yan on Keuka Lake and Dresden on Seneca Lake. The walk is simply beautiful. Since most of the walk is in a ravine, you are usually sheltered from winter winds. Bring a thermos with a hot beverage and enjoy the nature and frozen waterfalls. Located ant the North end of Keuka Lake or the West side of Seneca Lake. ~ Steve and Kathy Wirt - Wine Country Cabins B&B
