Hiking Programs

Each year, the FLTC offers a series of hikes across a different county along the trail. Completed year after year, the County Hike Series will eventually lead hikers over about 584 miles of trail to complete an End-to-End hike of the Main Finger Lakes Trail. This year we are excited to be moving across the beautiful and scenic Tompkins County! Registration for the Group Hikes closes April 1!

FLT Connect is a FREE series of workshops and presentations designed to educate, inspire, and connect trail users. Unless otherwise noted, all FLT Connect events are conducted via ZOOM. All FLT Connect events are recorded and made available through the FLTC’s YouTube Learning Library.

The mission of the Finger Lakes Trail Conference is to build, protect, enhance, and promote a continuous footpath across New York State. Forever!

The Finger Lakes Trail system, over 950 miles in length, runs from the Pennsylvania-New York border in Allegany State Park to the Long Path in the Catskill Forest Preserve, with branch trails to Niagara Falls, the Genesee River valley, the Great Eastern Trail south of Corning, the central Finger Lakes, and the Syracuse region. From the PA border to the northeast end of the Onondaga Branch, the Finger Lakes Trail is also the North Country National Scenic Trail. This system is built and maintained almost entirely by volunteers. Covering some of the most scenic land in New York, we welcome you to hike it, and volunteer to keep it beautiful. This site offers maps and tools for both.
