Finger Lakes Trail


The Finger Lakes Trail is a hiking trail that extends from the Allegheny Mountains to the Catskill Mountains, encompassing 562 miles running across New York State. The closest approachs to the Rochester area are one spur that extends up to the Letchworth State Park area and another that extends up near Naples at the southern end of Canandaigua Lake.

There are numerous trailheads along the trail that allow reasonably convenient day hikes. The terrain ranges from areas where you are walking alongside a road to some fairly rugged hills.
