Located in the hills south of Rochester, Canadice is 1099 feet above sea level. Compare that to Cayuga Lake, the lowest Finger Lake at about 381 feet. Canadice is also the shortest Finger Lake, only three miles long, whereas Cayuga, the longest, stretches 38 miles. Canadice and nearby Hemlock Lake are the only two Finger Lakes with undeveloped shorelines, and they provide the City of Rochester's water supply.
