Event Navigation

CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19:

The Letchworth Branch Trail of the Finger Lakes Trail System is a 27 mile long pathway along the Genesee River as it passes through the gorge within Letchworth State Park. This trail is heavily used by hikers, runners, and visitors to the area as it overlooks the gorge and its three waterfalls. The project will involve creating drainages, rerouting and armoring the trail in the most heavily used sections. Waterbars, ditches, and knicks will be used to help in these situations.
