A friend came up from NC and wanted to get an overnight hike in while in NY. After walking the loop at Watkins Glen, we hit the Interloken from the south. Got a later than expected stop and make camp at Foster Pond. Not a lot of clear running water sources, so fill up here. Finished up the out and back the next day.
A great trail with transitions from woods to active grazing fields and lots of boardwalks and puncheons.
The southern end is where you'll find the steepest parts but nothing beyond moderate in my opinion.
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.
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.
