Welcome to the trail! This interactive map can help you find the Finger Lakes Trail, access points, shelters and camping places along the trail in your region. This is an overview map and if you would like more detail, we recommend that you purchase maps, guides, and GPS files from the FLTC Store. These maps and their trail descriptions are particularly useful when the trail joins other trails or woods roads not depicted on the interactive map.
