New CNY hiking book released

Short Hikes in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State
Auburn - Syracuse Region

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.”

The following excerpt is from his webpage

“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.”
2015, 130 pages, top spiral bound, 80 full color photos $19.95
