Hiking, Biking, Horseback Riding

Whether you prefer foot power, pedal power or horse power for your outdoor adventure, we can help.

For the avid hiker, the Finger Lakes Trail is easily accessible at a number of places in Cortland County and can provide great starting points for a day hike or a couple of days on the trail. For an easy family outing Lime Hollow Nature Center has miles of trails and a beautiful interpretive center to start from.

If pedal power is your preference Cortland County’s rolling hills and scenic byways provide a great on road or off road cycling experience. For on road riders we have developed a brochure that suggests some enjoyable rides. It is yours for the asking, just a give us a call or send us an e-mail.

And if you’d like to saddle up for a trail ride talk to the folks at Maybury Brook Stables about a ride through one of our state forests. For the accomplished equestrian check with Lone Birch Stables to see what events and clinics are being offered.
