The strip of land you will be biking from Seneca Lake to Keuka Lake is steeped in history. You’ll see the evidence of places and events from several bygone eras as you pedal westward.

In the middle of the nineteenth century, two fingers of water connected the 274-foot drop between Keuka and Seneca Lakes, they were, the outlet to power mills and the Crooked Lake Canal for boat traffic. A dam and guardhouse in Penn Yan controlled the water flow to both. The outlet, which still carries water from one lake to the next, was formed by a ground fault in the Tully limestone allowing water to run between the two lakes. Along its banks you’ll see remnants of the many mills that once harnessed the waterpower.The first white settlers arrived in this area around 1788, attracted by the reliable water source at the outlet. In 1789, Seneca Mill was built along the raging waters of Keuka Lake Outlet to grind flour with a 26-foot, overshot flywheel. From then until 1827, a small religious group called the Society of Universal Friends built 12 dams and many mills that helped make the area a thriving community. The mills and shops produced flour (gristmills), lumber (sawmills), tool handles, linseed oil, plaster, and liquor (distilleries). There were two triphammer forges, eight fulling and carding mills, tanneries, and weavers making cotton and wool cloth. By 1835, 30 to 40 mills were in operation. But, by 1900, only 5 mills remained, mainly making paper from straw. The last water-turbine mill ceased operation in 1968.

In 1833, New York State opened the Crooked Lake Canal to span the 6 miles between the two lakes and move farm products to eastern markets. The canal was 4 feet deep and had 28 wooden locks. It took a vessel 6 hours to journey through the canal. As business boomed in the mills, the state widened and deepened the canal and replaced the wooden locks with stone. But, the canal lost money every year of its 44-year history, so in 1877, the state auctioned off all of the machinery and stone. Only the towpath remained.

In 1844, a railroad was built on the towpath. Initially operated by the Penn Yan and New York Railway Company, it eventually became part of the New York Central System. Railway men called it the “Corkscrew Railway” because of its countless twists and turns. The line operated until 1972, when the tracks were washed out by the flood from Hurricane Agnes.

A local group interested in recreational use of the ravine convinced the town of Penn Yan to buy the property in 1981. Since then, it has been developed and maintained by a volunteer group called the Friends of the Outlet. Trail signs and outhouses were recently added along the route.

Reference Guides: Purchase an illustrated guide to the Keuka Lake Outlet for $1.00 from the Yates County Historian, 110 Court Street, Penn Yan, NY 14527. A packet of information on the history of the mill sites, canal, and railroad of the Keuka Lake Outlet is available for $3.00 at stores in Penn Yan.

Trail Directions:
•The trail leads downhill from the back-right corner of the Dresden parking lot, heading west.
•Cross under the Route 14 bridge. The land you’re on used to be the Dresden Mill Pond.
•The wetland to your right (north of the trail) is the old Crooked Lake Canal.
•Cross two wooden bridges
•Notice the steep cliffs on both sides. Here where the canal and outlet are close together was the location of Lock 3. Watch for the cement and rebar millstone.
•Cross a dirt road. This was Hopeton Road, which connected Geneva to Bath through the town of Hopeton in the 1790s. To your left you can still see remnants of the iron-pony, truss bridge over the outlet. The bridge was built in 1840, and rests on stone abutments. This area was once a community of mills.
•Hopeton Grist Mill was located just beyond the dirt road on the left. Nothing remains of it today.
•On your left is a pleasant rest area with large rocks that you can sit on along the water.
•Across the outlet, Bruces Gully cascades water over three waterfalls to join the outlet. Eventually the Friends of the Outlet plan to build a hiking trail t

Now You Watch How Mama Does It.

Now You Watch How Mama Does It.

Marika and her babe on their picnic. This is the only surviving cygnet of this year, and we are all holding on to our breaths for its well-being. It is possible that our beautiful wee Pearl was killed by a bicyclist, who are not supposed to be down on the pathway, but who insist on racing along and god help anything in their way. While this little family were out and about I had to stop quite a few bikers, they shouted at me, spit on me, ran their bikes into me, and unfortunately carried on riding their bikes. Please carry this message forward to all your children, friends, enemies...in city nature parks, follow the rules, these areas are for the beasties, and if we are lucky and respectful, for our enjoyment and the great honour of sharing some time with these creatures, great and small.
And may I add, if riding dirt bikes in a wilderness area, also stay to the path, flora and fauna reside up the embankements that are so enticing to dirt bikes, do not aim your wheels at slugs, dislodge mosses etc. all only for your pleasure.

Now back to this special moment, Mom had found some delectible grasses under the bushes, and was instructing babe on where the choice spots were. She clucked so softly and babe watched with such intent, and then tucked her little head down and went to sleep.
