2023 County Hike Series: Registration is OPEN!

Explore the FLT through Schuyler County. . .

Registration is OPEN for the 2023 County Hike Series!

Hike Across Schuyler County!

Each year, the FLTC offers a series of hikes across a different county along the trail. Completed year after year, the County Hike Series will eventually lead hikers over about 584 miles of trail to complete an End-to-End hike of the Main Finger Lakes Trail. This year we are excited to be moving across the beautiful and scenic Schuyler County!

The County Hike Series is one of the FLTC’s most popular hiking events, and there truly is an option for everyone. Whether you are a trail runner or like to stop and smell the flowers, there will be a group to fit your desired pace!

The longest hike is approximately 11.2 miles and the shortest is approximately 6.1 miles. The Series concludes during the FLTC’s Fall Weekend Festival at the Schuyler County Event Center in Watkins Glen. Hikes are scheduled for the third Saturday of each month, and this year’s series will kick off on May 20th.
