The FLTC sponsors three major hike programs:
- FLT50 — New in 2020, FLT50 is the Finger Lakes Trail Conference’s FREE virtual hiking challenge. Complete 50 miles on the FLT, log your miles and send them to us and we’ll send you a beautiful inaugural patch and sticker to show off your accomplishment! Share your adventures on social media tagging @fingerlakestrail and using the hashtags #FLT50 and #fingerlakestrail and you could win fun monthly prizes and see your pictures in our publications!
- Cross-County Hike Series — Each year, the FLTC cooperates with affiliate organizations to sponsor a Cross-County Hike Series. The series includes several organized hikes, about one per month, that are intended to promote hiking on the Finger Lakes Trail. Many members use these hikes in their quest for End-to-End awards. When you register for a series and participate in all of the hikes, you will have crossed a major section of the Finger Lakes Trail. There is a modest registration fee that covers the cost of transportation between the ends of each hike.
- FLT Passport Hikes — A “hike-it-yourself” program to introduce new hikers to the Finger Lakes Trail. Hike any four of the 12 easy hikes and earn awards from our program sponsors.
- Hiking 101 — A series of guided hikes geared towards the novice hiker.
