Harriet Hollister Spencer State Recreation Area

Harriet Hollister Spencer State Recreation Area, part of the New York state park system, is located six miles south of Honeoye, New York, off Canadice Hill Rd. in Ontario County, New York. The park is in the south part of the Town of Canadice.

Open year-round, the recreation area offers panoramic views of the countryside, including Honeoye Lake.

Because of its elevation, this recreation area gets more snow than many parks in the area, making it a mecca for winter sports enthusiasts. Trails, ranging in difficulty from novice to expert, are constructed, maintained, and groomed by the Rochester Cross Country Ski Foundation ( ). Cross-country skiing teams often use Spencer for practice, and recreational groups can often be seen on a winter outing.

The land was a gift to the state from the estate of Harriet Hollister Spencer (1887-1962), a Rochester rose expert and civic leader.

The park has one picnic pavilion, and offers hiking, cross-country skiing, and biking trails, and hunting.
