Yes, I like winter, but I'm thinking about spring hiking plans. Marie and I have blocked off a week plus. We have plans, but it includes what will be a completion of the Finger Lakes Trail for me. (She's missing a few pieces).
Here's what I have left to do, 45 miles. You can click and make it bigger.
How does that fit into the entire trail? Here's the overview map.
I've put the two red arrows (as also seen in the first map) at the east end so you can see the perspective.
I haven't done all the branches yet. I have done part of the yellow branch (over near the west end. It's Letchworth gorge, where I've taken you a few times).
I did the blue one that goes north toward Syracuse because that is where the North Country Trail leaves the FLT. All the black line west of there is NCT also.
And over the past three years, Marie and I have continued working eastward.
Going east the 2011 hike starts with Jackson Pond Campsite
The 2012 hike starts with East Pharsalia to Tucker Road
The 2013 hike starts with Shear Road to Barbour Brook Road
There are several hundred people who have hiked this whole trail. I won't be anything special, but I'm getting excited anyway!
