Lakeside Beach State Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"The Great Lakes contain 20% of the world’s surface fresh water—a staggering fact in and of itself—but more pertinent is the lakes’ continual influence on the region’s environment, most notably through lakeeffect rain and snow, a constant source of grumbling in central New York. Within the immediate vicinity of the Great Lakes, winds blowing off the lakes create a more favorable environment for agriculture—which explains why the southern shores of Lake Ontario contain some of New York’s most productive fruit orchards. Nestled among these orchards is Lakeside Beach State Park. In fact, up until 1962, when the state established the 743-acre park, it was farmland and fruit orchards."
