Waterfall on outlet trail

Keuka Outlet Trail

For visitors to Penn Yan’s Outlet Trail , Seneca Mills Falls is an easy diversion just off the trail. The aptly named Keuka Outlet Trail leading to the falls is a mostly level, three-mile walk from the start of the trail.  Seneca Mill Falls is a 40+ foot cascade in three sections, one being an old mill dam spillway. Cascade Mill Falls is a 20 foot cascade with irregular drops, and a small dam spillway several feet upstream.  The idyllic, shale-laden swimming hole near the falls is surrounded by ferns and natural vegetation.

Indian Pines Park

This peaceful park along the northern tip of Keuka Lake in Penn Yan has one of the best views of the east branch of Keuka Lake. Pack a picnic and enjoy a day at the lake, there are grills and picnic tables available but are first come first serve. During the summer months lifeguards are on duty at the swimming area. There is also a full playground for kids to get all their energy out. This spot is a local favorite for picking an ice cream cone up at the Seneca Farms drive-thru and enjoying it by the lake.
