The Lake Ontario Seaway Trail | Day Trips Around Rochester, NY
The Great Lakes Seaway Trail is a 518 mile scenic drive along Lake Erie, the Niagara River, LakeOntario, and the St. Lawrence River in NewYork and Pennsylvania.
We’ll be focused on the portion that runs along the southern LakeOntario shoreline, from Fort Niagara in Youngstown to Fort Ontario in Oswego. Check out our Google Map of locations along the Seaway Trail.
Western Seaway Trail
West of the Genesee River
The trail runs from Fort Niagara to Rochester mainly along Rt. 18, taking you through Youngstown, Wilson, Olcott, Oak Orchard, Hamlin, Braddock Bay, Hilton, and Charlotte.
I recommend breaking the route in two: Fort Niagara one day, Fort Ontario another. I’d also recommend enjoying the stops backwards, heading into Rochester rather than away.
Get the bulk of the long-drive out of the way in the morning and start the trip at the farthest point, bouncing your way back slowly toward Rochester. You’ll have a better gauge of your time, how you and your traveling companions are feeling, and ensure that you don’t use up your energy before a long drive home.
The great thing about a trip like this is it’s primarily slow roads passing through small farming and lakeside communities. You’ll find unique places to see, shop and eat while enjoying a relaxing day along LakeOntario. You’ll also find a great variety of places that will entertain you, inspire you, and calm you.
Eastern Seaway Trail
East of the Genesee River
The trail runs from Fort Ontario to Rochester primarily Lake Rd (Rt 1, Rt 101) and Rt 104, taking you through Oswego, Sterling, Sodus, Huron, Pultenyville, Webster, and Seabreeze.
