Seneca County is home to the Northeast College of Health Sciences. The college has been at the forefront of chiropractic education for more than 100 years.

Many of the school's alumni have opened chiropractic and wellness clinics throughout the region.
With miles of forested hillsides and rolling terrain, Seneca County offers the perfect destination for hiking and biking. The Finger Lakes National Forest (Lodi) is a multi-use area with over 30 miles of interconnecting trails that traverse gorges, ravines, pastures and woodlands, while the seven-mile Cayuga-Seneca Canal Trail connects the city of Geneva to the Village of Waterloo. Among the best biking options, the nearly 70 miles of scenic byways and local roadways that parallel the lakes and shorelines offer pure scenic beauty. Each July, hundreds of cyclists converge on the area as part of the Cycle the Erie Canal event.
Seneca County is home to three of the region's most popular golf courses - with each venue open to the public and featuring 18-hole layouts. Seneca Falls Country Club (Seneca Falls) and Bonavista State Park Golf Course (Ovid) offer picturesque views of Cayuga Lake and Seneca Lake respectively, while Silver Creek Golf Course (Waterloo) is known for its excellent-rolling greens and full-length driving range.
Horses are known for their innate ability to sense human emotion and mirror human behavior. It's no wonder why the two have long had a powerful connection. At D&K Ranch in Interlaken, "Horse Therapy" is how guests often describe their experiences -- a testament to the way horses help us learn more about ourselves and our ability to communicate with others.
