Earth Day Hike on the Cayuga Trail this Sunday

39 weeks 4 days ago
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 contact Jim Connors at

Date/time: Sunday, April 22; 1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Cost: Free and registration is not required
Location: Meet at the Cornell Community Garden Plots, off of Freese Road, about halfway between NY Route 366 and Hanshaw Road. Watch for a driveway entering the parking area on the east side of the road.
