The Cayuga Trails Club will sponsor this 29th annual Earth Day Hike,
following a 4.4-mile-long section of the Cayuga Trail in the beautiful
Monkey Run Natural Area of Cornell Botanic Gardens. This trail takes
hikers along the high banks and water’s edge of Fall Creek, and features
early spring wildflowers, birds, breathtaking vistas, and the beauty of
one of the botanic gardens’ off-campus natural areas. Wear sturdy
footwear and bring drinking water and rain gear, if needed. Be prepared
for steep climbs and descents; the hike is moderately strenuous.
Transportation will be available at the end of the hike to take
participants back to the parking area. For more information, please
