Cohocton Fall Foliage Scenic Drive

Take a drive on gently curved roads tucked away in the rolling hills through small villages and along the scenic highway as you make your way from Corning, NY to Hornell, NY.

This scenic drive starts out in Corning, NY at the Corning Museum of Glass. Take a left onto Route 415 North and once outside the Village of Painted Post you'll find yourself on a gently curving road with rolling hills that parallels Interstate I-86. This route will take you through the villages of Campbell, Savona, and Bath.

Once you arrive in Bath, NY, hop on the highway. It may not sound scenic, but the hills and vistas that open up in front of you along I-86 West and then I-390 North are truly spectacular! Take Exit 2 in Cohocton to North Cohocton and visit the Olde Country Store and More at 2 University Avenue North Cohocton, NY and discover unique gifts, home décor, and old-fashioned candy.

In Cohocton, head south on Cohocton-Loon Lake Rd Route 121, where you will skirt the eastern edge of Loon Lake, a favorite fishing and camping spot among locals and visitors alike. Turn left onto Route 21 South and drive for 15 miles through idyllic countryside, the hamlet of Haskinsville, and past the Hornell City Reservoirs.

As you enter North Hornell, you'll find yourself at a crossroads. Turn left onto Route 36 North to visit Jenkins Farm Market at 8637 Route 36 North in Arkport, NY for local produce, Amish baked goods, and a full service deli counter, and then stop in at Wild Brute Winery at 8629 Oak Hill Road in Arkport, NY. Known for their small batch, unfiltered fine wines, Wild Brute is a can't-miss stop. Continue north on Route 36 to visit Stony Brook State Park for scenic fall hikes, or a swim in their modified gorge pool on a warm summer's day.

If you choose to turn right instead, you will find yourself in downtown Hornell. In addition to several restaurants and shopping opportunities along Main Street and the Broadway Mall, you can visit the Erie Depot Museum at 111 Loder St in Hornell, NY and explore artifacts and memorabilia honoring the railroad heritage that built a thriving community.

After a day of driving among breathtaking scenery and stopping at a few great locally owned businesses along the way, sit back and relax at Railhead Brewing Company at 40 Park Drive in Hornell, NY. This micro brewpub specializes in brick oven pizza to pair with their brews and is the perfect end to a daylong drive through the spectacular Finger Lakes fall foliage.
