Description

This portion of the trail is part of a much larger regional trail system. The main Finger Lakes Trail is 559 miles long and connects the Catskills with the Allegheny Mountains, passing through remote areas of the Southern Tier of New York State. Some of this trail crosses private land between sections of the Finger Lakes National Forest; please respect private property rights. This portion of the Finger Lakes Trail is also part of the North Country Trail, a National Scenic Trail that originates in North Dakota and meanders east to Lake Champlain. Skiers use caution in the section between Burnt Hill Road and County Route 4, as there are steep downhill runs. The portion of the trail that crosses Finger Lakes National Forest is primitive in nature with a natural tread and boardwalk over wet areas. Portions of the trail are moderately steep and travel through hardwoods and open areas. There is an ‘Adirondack’ style shelter that is available for camping on a first come – first served basis. Enjoy beautiful vineyards and vistas from this trail, including views of Seneca Lake. Please practice Leave No Trace ethics, such as carry out what you carry in.
