Consult with this page for notices of trail conditions before you leave for your hike. Click on the "Sort by" option to sort the notices by map number or by date.
When sorted by map, the notices are listed going from west to east on the main trail, and then north to south on the branch trails (south to north on Conservation and Onondaga trails). Click on the map names above the table to jump to the notices for a particular map. You can then scroll up and down to view other nearby notices. Map names in red indicate that one or more notices for that map contain hunting notices or other temporary trail closures. Check carefully for these notices during hunting season(s) in your area. Map names with a line through have no notices.
The date of the most recent major revision is shown for each map. Check the revision date on your map to see if it might be outdated. All changes to maps—both major revisions and minor updates—are reported as Trail Notices highlighted in pink. Use these notices to decide when you want to replace an outdated map.
When sorted by Date the notices are listed with the most recent notices anywhere on the FLTC system listed first.
Some older notices have been archived as they may contain information that is still useful if you have not visited the trail recently. Click the "Archived" link to view these notices.
Please remember: Trail conditions change frequently. Trail Conditions are posted when reported. Trail conditions are verified and rectified if and when volunteers are available.
Are my paper maps, PDF files, and GPX files up to date?
We do revise maps and GPX files when trail conditions change. This includes reroutes, changes to hunting seasons closures, and other significant changes. We do not revise maps for temporary conditions such as logging closures. All trail condition changes, both permanent and temporary, are posted on our¬†Trail Condition Notices¬†page on this website. We encourage hikers to always check the Notices before hiking even if their maps are up to date. Temporary condition notices are usually removed when the notice no longer applies. Permanent condition notices are generally archived after a year or two.¬†
If you have purchased FLTC maps, the revision date is included in the legend of paper and PDF maps and in the Copyright waypoint in GPX files. You can check the current revision date of any map in these ways:
Trail Condition Notices¬†- Set the sorting option to "Map" and click on the map name to jump to the trail notices for that map. Then look in the heading for the map for a description of the map and the latest revision date.
Interactive map¬†- Hover over the FLT icons (¬†¬†or¬†¬†) to display the revision date. Click on the icon to see more information about the map.
