Over 20 miles of year-round trails are the prime attraction at the "Adirondacks of Central New York." The oldest county park contains more than six square miles of rugged forest terrain detailed in free maps available at Skyline Lodge.
An interactive trail map can now be downloaded to your mobile device using Maprika. Among other features, this free app allows you to locate friends anywhere in the park and track your route. Once you download the app in the Apple Store or Google Play, download the map here.
