GEOCACHING Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers equipped with GPS devices. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online. Geocaching is enjoyed by people from all age groups, with a strong sense of community and support for the environment. Check out the Ultimate Guide to Geocaching.
Harriet Hollister Spencer State Park: Although it offers no direct access with Honeoye Lake, this state park has a breathtaking view of the southern end of the lake from high atop Canadice Hill, 2,200 feet in elevation. Numerous trails cater well to hiking and biking and the scenic vistas are popular picnic locations. The far-above-average snowfall makes this park a favorite among winter sport enthusiasts.
Honeoye Inlet Wildlife Management Area: This newly purchased state land encompasses 2,100 acres along the Honeoye Inlet at the south end of the lake. Comprised of meadows, forested upland and marshland, this area is largely undeveloped.
Wesley Hill Nature Preserve: What this 390 acre preserves lacks in size it makes up for in character. The Finger Lakes Land Trust preserves this collection of upland woodlands, mature forests and steep gullies, including portions of the massive Briggs Gully.
Grimes Glen County Park: This well-preserved Finger Lakes glen is the perfect compliment to the Naples country-side. Thanks to the efforts of the Finger Lakes Land Trust and Ontario county, people can enjoy this wonderful park and its cool, refreshing water. The previous landowners allowed hikers to explore the glen, but its future was in question. Thanks to the efforts of all the parties involved, in 2008 Grimes Glen became an Ontario County park and it preservation assured. The park consists of 32 acres, including several waterfalls and a heavily wooded hillside along the creek. Grimes Glen is far longer than the park itself, but the remainder is on private property.
Cumming Nature Center: The RMSC (Rochester Museum and Science Center) Cumming Nature Center is a 900-acre preserve located 40 minutes south of Rochester, New York in the Finger Lakes region near the village of Naples. The center features groomed trails for hiking in spring, summer, and fall, and for snowshoeing and classic cross-country skiing in the winter months. In spring, summer and fall, walk six miles of gentle hiking trails through woods and wetlands. Bring a snack or lunch to enjoy in the Visitors Center where restrooms are available. Seasonal weekend programs include maple sugaring in spring and a timber sports competition among college woodsman teams in October. In the winter months, 15 miles of groomed trails welcome cross-country skiers. Snowshoers enjoy a 2-mile loop trail of their own. Children will enjoy Leap Frog Pond -- a permanent play space designed especially for preschoolers. Over-sized frogs, turtles, tadpoles, lily pads and mushrooms fill a make-believe pond.
Hunt Hollow Ski Club: Enjoy skiing and riding on nearly 100 acres of terrain covering the second highest mountain in Western New York; scenic trails for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and hiking; and a spacious Alpine lodge providing scenic views, fireplaces, grills and gourmet catering.
