Combine mowed grass trails, a gravel road, a woods path and a short paved road section for a great bike loop along the western shore of Hemlock Lake and north of Hemlock Lake. Not a cottage in sight! At the southernmost point of this trail you can sit on a bench in the woods and watch eagles soar over Hemlock Lake.
A map and description of this trail can be found in the guidebooks "Take A Hike - Family Walks in New York's Finger Lakes Region" and "Take Your Bike - Family Rides in New York's Finger Lakes Region" each available through EMS.
Before heading out on the trail, pick up a free permit at the permit station on the corner of Rix Hill Road and Boat Launch Road.
Take Route 15A south through Hemlock. Turn west onto Rix Hill Road and pull into the permit station at the corner of Rix Hill Road and Boat Launch Road.
