May 7, 2020

Get out today or this weekend and discover a new, local trail. FFSYR Trail Running Coach MJ highlights a new route each week.

This week he takes you on the North Country Trail and Finger Lakes Trail (FLT). This trail system stretches 4,600 miles across eight states from North Dakota to Vermont.

Coach MJ's Trail Tip: Download a map or screen shot to use on trail and turn your phone to airplane mode to help conserve battery life. Usually, limited service in the woods will drain your battery.
The trail works in conjunction with the FLT thru CNY. It also uses the Link Trail and Stone Quarry Art Park in Cazenovia. I talked with another runner later Sunday who posted a workout from down there too. He said because Highland Forest was too busy he opted to start on the East side of DeRuyter Reservoir. In 5 miles he saw not one other hiker. It took me 15.5 miles before I saw someone.
