Are you new to hiking and the Finger Lakes Trail?¬†¬†¬†The¬†FLT Passport Hike system¬†is a series of fun, easy hikes to introduce you to the the Finger Lakes Trail. In addition to fun and healthy activity, you can earn awards by taking these hikes yourself. At the trail register somewhere on each hike, you can do a rubbing of the hike number into your Passport booklet.¬†
Hike #10 Upper Robert Treman State Park June 27, 2015
Due to severe thunderstorms, trails are closed (impassable) and Passport station is destroyed.
Hike #2 Letchworth Falls - May 8. 2015
Letchworth State¬†Park has closed off the south end of our trail within park property because preparations for the upcoming new railroad bridge have destabilized the hill above the trail.¬† So the rubbing post for hike 2 in Letchworth State Park in the Central booklet is beyond the closure point.¬† We can still walk to the viewpoint opposite the Middle Falls, but that's all, so only half of that hike can be done for the next couple of years.
