Hike Details

This is a 7 mile loop hike that will tie together three local trail systems: the Cayuga Trail, Dryden Rail Trail, and East Ithaca Recreation Way. Portions of the trail will be wet and muddy.

Part of the route goes through Cornell property that is open to bow hunters, but not anywhere that gun hunting is allowed.

The hike is rated moderate primarily due to the distance. The elevation change is about 200 feet.

Dress in layers for the weather, bring water and lunch or snacks.

If you will have trouble navigating to the trailhead, contact the hike leader at the address above.

Watch this space the morning of the hike for any changes or a cancellation.
