Outdoor Recreation

Getting outdoors is essential in the Finger Lakes with endless opportunities for outdoor adventure year- round. Snow sports, biking, hiking, golf, and watersports are among the favorites of both locals and visitors.

In summer there are a multitude of activities on the water. We are the Finger Lakes region! Kayak, canoe, standup paddle board or sail across the pristine waters and enjoy the incredible views of the shoreline. Plus, every community has a park or playground where tennis, soccer, swimming, basketball, and frisbee golf are just a few more ways to play.

Winter activities run the gamut from downhill and cross-country skiing to snowshoeing, skating, and ice fishing. 

Hiking and biking enthusiasts will enjoy well-marked trails through pristine fields and forests and gazillion back roads with jaw-dropping views on every turn in every season of the year.

Snow bunny, golf fanatic, yogi wannabe, whatever your outdoor activity of choice, Ontario County has trails and itineraries to inspire you.
