Finger Lakes Trail Hikes Heading Thru Cattco

Registration Deadline March 28

Each year, the Finger Lakes Trail Conference (FLTC) cooperates with affiliate organizations to sponsor a Cross-County Hike Series.

This year the series will feature the scenic lands at the western terminus of the FLT in Cattaraugus County. Those of us living in this part of the state realize that none of the elevations that we enjoy in our travels qualify as “mountains.” However, as part of this year’s series, as the trail passes into the Allegheny plateau, we will encounter a total ascent of over 10,000 feet. To put this in perspective, our highest NYS peak (Mt. Marcy) has an elevation of 5,344 feet.

Of course we will be hiking the 96-miles of the series over a course of eight hikes taking place over six weekends from April to September.

We have lots of new options this year including Two-Hike Weekends, Half-Hikes, Marathon Hikes, and Cross-Cattaraugus Shirts.

The $50 member registration fee covers transportation by bus that will shuttle hikers from their cars to the beginning of each hike. The fee also includes a completion patch, certificate and supplies for the sag wagons.

Register online or call (585) 658-9320. Registration will top off at 150 and closes March 28.
