The Lakeside Loop at Lakeside State Park near Waterport, New York is an easy 0.3-mile loop walk that leads down to the lakeside bluffs of Lake Ontario and features views.
This short hike does not follow any defined trail, but rather follows disc golf course goal posts along the hillside and down to the waterfront.
Lake Ontario View - Mile 0.15
At mile 0.15, at the lake shore, hikers get a nice view of Lake Ontario from the top of the lake shore's bluff. As of September, 2022, the waterfront was under construction in certain areas and had orange fencing around the bluffs - likely to keep people out temporarily.
Note that due to timing, we had to leave after just 0.3-miles of walking; however, there's plenty of unmarked paths hikers can take from here if they follow the lake shore heading west.
Parking & Fees
Visitors will find a very large parking lot at the coordinates provided. There's a $10 fee as of September, 2022 to enter the park for out-of-state plates.
Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
