The route will guide you around the serene Beebe Lake and through the Newman Arboretum’s vibrant wildflowers and varied plant life, all part of the Cornell Botanic Gardens and along the Cayuga Trail. The summer bloom promises a feast for the eyes.

Dress comfortably in light, moisture-wicking summer clothing, and don’t forget your sturdy hiking footwear, water, sunscreen, and bug spray if necessary.

Be mindful that it’s tick season; wearing long pants and sleeves is recommended for protection. Always perform a tick check after your hike.
