New, improved trails announced

Thanks to the hard work by Cazenovia Preservation Foundation volunteers over the last year, all the trails have been revitalized.

Sit on a bench above a massive stone retaining wall while watching the gushing water of Chittenango Creek along the South Trail. Cross-country ski along the old grade of the Cazenovia-Canastota Railroad and learn about the trail's history from newly placed interpretive signs along the Gorge Trail. Bird watching has been made easier now at Fairchild Hill with a newly renovated parking area, drier trail entrance and strategically placed signs so you will never get lost.

Still want more nature?

Come visit Burlingame Road Trail with its miles and miles of woods and open fields now made easier for hikers with the help of new directional signs and repaired trails. In the heart of the village, find a bit of secluded nature at Carpenter's Pond trail showcasing wildlife, waterways and the unique willow patch. Before you head out on your adventure, stop and check out the kiosk for more information about the trail, the rules, but most importantly, to sign in. Over the last year, CPF trails have had more than 2,700 visitors. Just by taking a minute of your time will help CPF receive grants for trail maintenance and improvements.
