Go to Seneca Falls via thruway or

onto S Walnut St by the Byrne Dairy in Seneca
Falls on Route 5&20. (Byrne Dairy is on
the water side of the street. The
Women's Rights National Park Visitor Center
and a pizza place are across the
street.) Go to the parking lot on
the right side of the Recreation Center.
There is a gate separating the lot from the
water, but we were told it is never locked.
