Hiking – Auburn Fleming Trail, Auburn

This park features glacially formed bluffs with scenic vistas of the Great Lake Ontario.

Biking – Between the Lakes Ride – NYS Scenic Byway Route 90, Union Springs

Cayuga Lake is the highlight of this ride with historic markers posted along the route that help tell the story of the area from the Cayuga Nation villages to the 1779 Sullivan Expedition.

Biking – Owasco Lake, Auburn

With Emerson Park at the north and Fillmore Glen State Park at the south end of the route, this ride around Owasco Lake is one of the easiest and picturesque around a Finger Lake.
