The Conesus Inlet is a waterway that winds through a marsh and drains water from the surrounding hills into Conesus Lake. Start the route from the parking lot by carrying your canoe or kayak (100 yards) to the dike to launch. Motors, including electric motors, are not allowed. This is shallow water, so when the water is low or the weeds get high you may have to pole through some of the marsh. By canoeing the inlet, you can get close to wildlife, including the great blue heron rookery at the southeast end of the marsh. Look for a cluster of large nests high in the trees. Birds Likely Seen: Variety of ducks, variety of geese, numerous shore birds, herons, hawks, goldfinches, bluebirds, variety of warblers, woodpeckers, nuthatches, chickadees, titmice blackbirds, sparrows and thrushes.
