Chenango includes 78 miles of the Finger Lakes Trail System, a network of 1,000 hike-able miles that stretch from the Western NY border deep into the Catskill Mountains. Well-maintained and clearly marked, this trail accommodates hikers and backpackers of all skill levels.
Canoers and kayakers can easily plan a pleasant day trip floating down the waterway, or maybe stopping to throw in a pole to catch the ‘big one’ in pristine natural settings.
After a day of exploration, wet your whistle at one of the breweries. Craft beers and hard cider sold by the growler, pint, and in the glass are available, as well as wine and spirits. All have great food and outdoor seating.
