Hiking the North Country Trail in Allegany State Park

Get out of the house and come join in the fun as Allegany State Park continues its series of hikes called “3rd Saturday Treks.” As the name implies, these free, family-friendly hikes take place on the 3rd Saturday of each month from May to October. These treks will be led by park staff or members of The Friends of Allegany State Park or Historical Society and each will focus on a different area of the park.

This month’s hike will take place on May 18, 2019 and be led by park staff member Joe Bottone. The hike will start at the trail head for North Country Trail on ASP Rt. 3 (between Blacksnake Trail (ASP site #42) and Bear Caves (ASP site #41)). We suggest participants park at the Bear Caves lot and walk a short distance to the start location at North Country Trail. This hike will focus on the history of Allegany State Park and explore old Camp Turner/ Group Camp 3. Participants will have the chance to see what remains of the old campsite and learn about the history behind it.

Hikers are asked to dress for the weather with appropriate footwear (hiking boots recommended).  The hike will begin at 1:00PM. Each hike will last approximately two hours.
