The FLTC publishes 65 high quality, waterproof paper maps and 65 downloadable digital map files of the Finger Lakes Trail system.

Purchase maps

For the best price on paper maps, purchase a standard map set containing from 9 to 66 maps. If you want scattered maps or just a portion of the trail system, you can select your own set of paper maps or digital map files—as many or as few as you need. The sale of maps helps to support the FLTC and the maintenance of the trail.

Are my paper maps, PDF files, and GPX files up to date?


About paper maps

Paper maps are laser printed in color on waterproof Rite in the Rain® paper at 8½ × 11 size. The scale of most maps is 1 inch = 1 mile while the scale of several loop trail maps is 1 inch = 1/3 mile or less. The back of each map contains a detailed description of the trail including “step-by-step” notes on road crossings, trail junctions, lean-tos and bivouac sites, drinking water, and points of interest.

Example from a typical map

You may purchase paper maps in sets or you can select individual maps from the interactive index map of the FLT system.

About digital map files

We also sell individual digital map files for immediate download. You can choose the files you want from the interactive index map of the FLT system. Each map file is in ZIP format and contains two files:

  • A PDF file containing front and back pages of the standard FLTC paper maps.
    • You can view the map or print a copy yourself.
    • The PDF file is geospatial-enabled and can be imported into your Apple or Android device for viewing and tracking. For more information, click here.
  • A GPX file containing the track and waypoints for the main trail and all spurs and loops.
