First Day Hike at Allegany State Park

First Day Hike At Allegany State Park

Discover the history of Allegany State Park- January 1, 2024. New York's State Parks and Historic Sites celebrates our Centennial in 2024, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the founding of our parks and sites system. Help us kick off this yearlong celebration and get your New Year off to a great start with a hike in Allegany State Park along the newly finished Quaker Run Area Multi-Use Trail. The Quaker Run Area is where Allegany State Park was born in 1921, and this year’s “First Day History Hike” is an easy trek featuring historical and environmental tidbits of information about the features found in this area of the park.

The hike starts at Camp Turner, where the Friends of Allegany State Park will be providing hot dogs, chips, hot chocolate, and coffee from 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. The Quaker Store Museum will be open for this special event to answer questions about the park and its history. The First Day Hike will run from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Dress for the weather and be sure to wear appropriate footwear and/or snowshoes.
