Awesome trail right near town along a river. Great for jogging and hiking or snow shoeing. Lots of entrances along Outlet road. Near the Milo mills rd entrance there's a rope swing and some rocks and it's nice to swim in summer. Buggy in summer. Pretty flat and wide trail.

If you are looking for a good easy hike this is a great trail. It connects Dresden at Seneca Lake to the town of Penn Yan at Keuka Lake. Runs along an old railroad bed with a canal on one side and a stream on the other. Old factories and remnants a time long ago give you a lot to look at and wonder about. The terrain is rather flat, and shared with bikers and families with dogs. Great coverage in and out of the sun. Near the Penn Yan entrance the trail is paved.

We hiked from the Lake Seneca side to Penn Yan which was perfect. When we entered Penn Yan there a few places offering lunch so we could relax and then return. At the Lake Seneca entrance there is an ice cream stand to enjoy.
