Detailed Hike Description

Oakley Corners is located in rural Tioga County near the town of Newark Valley. The hike includes a route that will take us through the southern end of the forest, which is has less elevation and takes us past two small ponds or lakes. Once we complete that loop, you may elect to end your hike at that point. For those who want more, we’ll continue on the north side of Dutchtown Road with another two miles of more challenging hiking and a bit more descent and ascent. The blue trails there offer some moderate challenge with a bit of elevation change.
