Walk a raised trail through the wetland where Conesus Inlet feeds into Conesus Lake. Once a woods, the Conesus Inlet Pond is now inhabited by waterlogged snags. It's home to a heron rookery, and favored by great blue herons, Canada geese, pheasants, ruffed grouse and many other birds.
Hike here in April and June to get a close-up view of northern pike spawning near the small dam at the northern end of Conesus Inlet Pond. Then follow the trail south for a 2-mile out and back easy walk. Finally drive south to Guiltner Road and take another 1-mile loop hike on a raised dike along a smaller pond filled with dead trees. Be sure to bring your binoculars.
A map and details for these trails can be found in the guidebook "Take A Hike - Family Walks in New York's Finger Lakes Region" available through EMS.
The main parking area for Conesus Inlet Trail is on Slinker Hill Road, just east of Route 256 at the south end of Conesus Lake.
