A perfect way to access Watkins Glen while beating some of the traffic and difficult parking within the state park. This trail hugs the ridge of the gorge, providing some great views that you can enjoy in seclusion as very few venture out towards the Fingerlakes Trail from the main area.

We ran it from Watkins Glen toward Sugar Hill. This put the big climb at the beginning of the run , and all downhill on the return

We've lived and worked in Watkins all our life and didn't know the trail existed before we found it on here. The trail west of the paved road is awesome single track with technical sections. East of the paved road, heading down into the park is very state park Esq. and is smooth and maintained.

This is a great trail and we will be back for more.
