Finger Lakes National Forest


 Positioned along the ridges between Cayuga Lake and Seneca Lake, the Finger Lakes National Forest offers scenic beauty and unlimited recreational opportunities any season of the year.  Whether you are a hiker, cross country skier, camper, fishing or hunting enthusiast, snowmobiler, horseback rider, mountain biker, or wildlife watcher, the Forest can provide the recreational experience you are seeking!     The Finger Lakes National Forest is a four-season recreation experience. The most popular season is autumn when the trees and pastures are ablaze with color.  Autumn is also very popular for hunting in the woods and brush lands of the forest.  Summer is popular for camping, hiking, horseback riding, bicycling, and fishing.  Winter brings out cross country skiers, snowmobiles, and snowshoe enthusiasts.  In spring, the Forest bursts forth from the grip of winter with emerging leaves on the trees, bird flyway activity, and numerous wildflowers that are visible along many of the Forest trails and pastures. The first fishing days are enjoyed by a lot of people. Mud season is usually short but intense. Going "off-road" and hiking on wet trails is not encouraged during this time.      Recreation Opportunity Guides
