Lace Up, Grab Your Pack, and Hit the Trails in Central New York!

The Finger Lakes and Central New York are not known for rugged mountains and panoramic vistas, commonly sought in the Adirondacks to the north. They hardly could be, the area was scoured clean by glaciers millennia ago. But don’t let that fool you, the region is full of natural wonders of its own. Instead of mountains and ridges, the region is known for rolling drumlins, an abundance of scenic gorges, quiet woodlands, beautiful waterfalls, and picturesque lakes. Trails included in Five-Star Trails: Finger Lakes and Central New York, by Tim Starmer, feature a broad mixture of these landscapes and were carefully selected to give the most varied but also rewarding experience when picking a trail.

Each trail has been thoroughly researched, recently hiked, and includes a detailed description, trail profile, and map. At-a-glance ratings in important categories such as scenery, trail condition, difficulty, solitude, and appropriateness for children let you quickly select a trail that fits your tastes and ability. Other useful information such as fees, restrictions for dogs on the trail, and advice on when to visit offers you the best information so you can plan your trip with ease.
