This is a loop that starts in the Seneca-Cayuga canal, crosses Seneca Lake near the north shore, re-enters the Seneca-Cayuga canal, and ends at the starting point.  

Seneca Lake can be rough here if the wind is out of the south, so prepare appropriately. Life jackets must be readily accessible.

The majority of the course is on the Seneca-Cayuga canal, about 30-50 yards wide, with very little current.
