trail on abandoned railway from Penn Yan to Dresden.
Park in the city park on Lake Street in Penn Yan
(see map). You
can access the trail at several points along the
way and can drive quite close to the two waterfalls.

is a well maintained hiking/biking trail which follows
the Keuka Lake Outlet from Penn Yan to Dresden where
this large stream enters Seneca Lake. The trail
is 5 miles long, one way. There are several old
mill sites along the way and two dandy waterfalls:
Seneca Mills and Cascade Mills.
is a mixed use trail and is suitable for mountain
bike, hybrid, or city bike. Thin-tired road bikers
may not like parts of it. It is paved for about
a mile in Penn Yan and the rest is smooth, well
packed dirt and gravel.
||We have done
this trail several times by bike (see bike
map). We start in Penn Yan and ride on back roads
to Dresden; a southern route via Himrod and a northern
route via Kashong Creek. We then travel back to Penn
Yan on the Outlet Trail for a leisurely round trip
of 2 or 3 hours.
