Canadice Lake Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The hike along Canadice Lake’s western shore follows access roads for the Rochester Water Department. Consequently the trail is broad and in excellent condition. Slightly more invigorating than the lake strolls found elsewhere in the book, the length of this trail results in a bit more solitude than the shorter, often-crowded lake trails. Total trip length is 8 miles, but with clear footing and level terrain, the mileage flies by."

Lovely gravel trail with views of the lake through the trees. Easy walk, but I would suggest hiking boots as the gravel is not compacted and uneven in many spots. The wide path with wildflowers on either side is especially pretty this time of year. I imagine there must be a fair amount of runoff coming down the hill in the early spring as there are many cutouts in the hill. Some were still trickling even this time of the year. There wasn't but another soul on the path when we went: birds were singing, bees were buzzing and the lake was as still as glass. If you go later in the summer, plan on bringing insect repellent. There is a narrow rivulet of water to the right of the path that has standing water (sure to be a mosquito heaven : - )
