The Centennial 7 Hiking Challenge at Allegany State Park

Allegany State Park, the Wilderness Playground of Western New York, officially opened on July 30th, 1921. One hundred years later, people are still flocking to this vast park with rolling hills, serene lakes, and abundant beauty. Recreation in the form of hiking is an important part of the park’s history. In fact, it was a chief motive for this vast 65,000-acre state park to be established.
