Hike Details

This is a six mile out-and-back hike rated moderate. We will hike the eastern end of the Cayuga Trail in Cornell’s Fall Creek Natural Area, sometimes referred to as Monkey Run.

The hike begins and ends at Flat Rock, Forest Home Drive, Ithaca. If you have a gps unit, set it for 410 Forest Home Drive.

Dress in layers appropriate for the weather, wear sturdy boots, and bring water. Bow hunting for deer is allowed in this Cornell Natural Area, but it’s unlikely we will see hunters. Nonetheless, it is wise to wear blaze orange.

If you will have trouble navigating to the start point, email the hike leader at the address above.

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