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. Don't know your map number? Go to the index map and click on the rectangle nearest your hike location.
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 Check the revision date on your map to see if it might be outdated.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‚ÄĒboth major revisions and minor updates‚ÄĒare 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 Use these notices to decide when you want to replace an outdated map.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Some older notices have been archived as they may contain information that is still useful if you have not visited the trail recently.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 revise paper maps, PDF files, and GPX files when trail conditions change significantly. When we do, we change the Revision Date of the map. We also apply minor updates to our maps as needed, and for these, we¬†do not¬†change the revision date. For all map changes, we post a Map Revision Notice on the¬†Trail Condition Notices¬†page on the website. You can use both the revision date and the Map Revision Notices to decide if you want to a fresh copy of a map.
We do not change our maps for temporary conditions such as logging closures, storm damage, or special events, but we do post Trail Condition Notices.
We encourage hikers to always check the¬†Trail Condition Notices¬†page¬†before hiking even if their maps are up to date. Here is a short tutorial:
On the interactive map¬†hover over the FLT icons (¬†¬†or¬†¬†) to display the revision date. Click¬†on the icon¬†‚Ě∂¬†to see more information about the map. Click on the link¬†‚Ě∑¬†to display the trail condition notices for the map.
On the Trail Condition Notices¬†with the sorting option set to "Map," click on the map name to jump to the trail notices¬†‚Ě∂¬†for that map. Then look in the heading for the map for a description of the map and the latest revision date¬†‚Ě∑. Also, check for Map Revision Notices¬†‚Ěł¬†shaded in pink.
