Short Hikes in the Finger
Lakes Region of New York State
When outdoor writer Roger Fulton moved to Central New York
in 2012, he promised to write a series of hiking, biking and kayaking books for
the Finger Lakes Regions. And he has done exactly what he said he would do with
the release of his second “short hikes” book, and it covers our own “home” area
from Auburn to Syracuse. In it he leads you to 25 of the best trails in the
region to explore at your leisure in both Cayuga and Onondaga Counties.
“We write outdoor books for ordinary people, he explained in
a recent release. “Therefore we don’t cover any trails over five miles in
length with most being much shorter. We want both individuals and families to
be able to enjoy the trails.”
“From miles of paved trails around Onondaga Lake to a
moderate trek up to a hang gliding takeoff area with a great view, we cover it
all. Then we explore even more interesting trails to the West of Syracuse to
the Skaneatlas and Auburn areas around Cayuga Lake. There you will find great
waterfalls and interesting nature trails to explore.
As always we give you explicit directions from an
Interstate highway to the trails and tell you what to expect when you get
there. Our books are always user friendly so you and your family can feel at
ease doing these interesting trails. Some are a little more adventurous than
others, but all are fun. We enjoyed hiking each and every one of these trails.
Now you can, too.
More than 80 full color photographs add to the interactive
nature of this book. Its unique size and top spiral binding will allow you to
carry it in your back pocket for easy reference on the trail. More than 100
pages of photos, directions, special attractions and cautions are contained in
this trail guide.”
