Hiking 101

Hiking 101

If you’ve ever wanted to get out and hike but felt like you didn’t know where to go or how to pack and prepare this is the perfect event for you! The Finger Lakes Trail’s Hiking 101 series is designed for novice hikers of all speeds and ability levels. We’ll be in touch with you before the hike with tips about what to pack and how to dress for the weather. You will be led by experienced hikers who know the trails and want to share their love of hiking with you.

These FREE hiking events use the Finger Lakes Trail/Wegmans Passport Hikes. Passport books will be provided for each participant and hikers who complete 4 of the 12 hikes in each book will get their Finger Lakes Trail Passport Patch.

Registration is REQUIRED for these events so that we can properly prepare all hikers for a great experience. Hikes will be held the first and last Saturday of each month beginning at the end of July. You may sign up for one, for a few, or for all the hikes. These events are family-friendly and leashed dogs are welcome.
