Come try out the Finger Lakes Trail by hiking a 12 mile section in Tompkins County with Barbara Nussbaum. This rugged hike encompassing several hills and significant climbs is on the Finger Lakes Trail Conference’s Map 17 and 18, in case you have a map or wish to order one from the conference (here’s their Web site to do that and find out more about them: www.fingerlakestrail.org).

We’ll meet at the FLT trailhead at  Braley Hill Road in Shindagin Hollow State Forest and car pool to the start of our hike at Michigan Hollow Road in Danby at the Finger Lakes Trail crossing. From there we'll be walking eastward through the Danby State Forest past the Tamarack Lean-To.   

Perhaps the outing will inspire participants to tackle the rest of this beautiful, 585-mile foot-trail stretching from Allegheny State Forest into the Catskills.

Bring raingear, wear appropriate footgear, pack a lunch and at least 2 liters of water.

Please email or call the hike leader before the hike date if you plan to attend as we need to arrange car shuttling. This hike may be postponed or modified in inclement weather.

This hike will qualify for the Hike 100 Challenge with the North Country Trail Association.
