Finger Lakes, New York, route and itinerary help

Jump to last reply

We are planning a short trip 4 nights, 3 days to the Finger Lakes, driving from Toronto mid afternoon Thursday September 13 driving through Niagara, and leaving Monday morning September 17 and returning the same route. We are mid 50's, in good shape, interested primarily in walking/hiking, scenery, history, geology, horticulture, and local culture. I know there are wineries in the area, but having visited many wineries in Ontario we are not interested in wineries for this trip. Fine dining is not necessary this trip either.
We would like to stay 1 night in Letchworth State Park at the Glen Iris Inn, I think it makes sense to stay there either night 1 or night 4, other possible places to visit include Watkins Glen State Park, and other State parks or places with waterfalls and interesting hikes, my DH would like to include the Corning glass museum.
We are fine with staying in a different hotel every night, nothing expensive or fancy required. I would like advice on a loop route we could follow, using mostly local roads not major highways and suggestions for other places to visit that fit with our interests.I am interested in local arts, crafts but wouldn't drive far off a suitable route to include them.
Thanks in advance
