See the Hinchcliff Family Preserve from the Air Above Skaneateles Lake

The steep hillsides of southern Skaneateles Lake make for lovely cloud shadows and great views from the Hinchcliff Family Preserve, a Finger Lakes Land Trust conservation area with miles of trails through forest and fields, and historic ruins from farmhouses of yesteryear.
