Completed this trail over Veteran's Day weekend 2016. Trail a little damp but for the season was great. The fall leaves were almost finished but still enough left to enjoy the walk. Stayed in nearby Dunham Shelter which was just a short walk on the intersecting Finger Lakes Trail. In the fall there was no trail traffic, the views were amazing and trail was well maintained.

Nice hike, nice trees. The trail runs between two roads. Would go again.

Went backpacking for the night. Very hard to find a decent water source the ponds were basically swamps and all the streams were dried up

Nice easy trail that cuts through a cow pasture (cows present). Great views and nice wooded sections as well.

Was looking for a place to camp out for a night not too far out, but still far enough to feel embedded within the woods. Hiked around for a bit before we found a nice place to set up camp only about a mile or so away from where we parked our cars. A great place to go if you're looking for an easy camp.

The Interloken Trail is an amazing trail! It is relatively easy, but not to be overlooked. From end to end, you are offered views of Seneca Lake as you move from forest to pasture. For more info, please visit: www.RedTrailedHawk.com

Tends to get the first and longest lasting snow on the east side of Seneca Lake due to its high elevation which captures the moisture of the prevailing westerlies. There will often be snow there when the rest of the area is bare.

Heavily wooded, easy access from Watkins Glen. Can be a good hike on a clear Autumn day.

Finger Lakes National Forest. Easy- Moderate hike. Starts out grassy leading into the forest and along the gorge/ creek. Rocky at points- if its a wet day you are sure to see lots of Red Newts so watch your step on the trail. It's a very beautiful and peaceful walk.

Hiked the Gorge Trail Loop today; well marked trail quite muddy at time but still nice. Fall colors are beautiful and the trail is covered with leaves.

My group and I stayed at a place along the trail that had a very stable shelter with fire pits. The clearing was very nice, and the view from the camp site was amazing. We had a great time in complete isolation. This is a good place to go camping if you like solitude and peacefulness.

Beautiful trails all within an easy drive of Watkins Glen, with lots of great spots to just pull over and camp at trail heads. The trails cycle back to the main road making it easy to extend or expand your run or walk as much as you want.
