Hemlock Lake is undeveloped along its shore, pristine and is preserved in its natural state. It is the only Finger Lake that was not named by the local Native Americans. Canadice Lake is also free of development and has the highest elevation of the 11 Lakes. Despite being the shortest of the lakes, at just under 4 miles long, the Native American translation of Canadice Lake is “Long Lake.” Together, these two Finger Lakes are known as the Hemlock-Canadice State Forest. Water-related activity takes on a whole different meaning on these two Finger Lakes. You are likely to see far more wildlife than people.
