Outdoor Recreation

Cayuga County, quite simply, is a nature-lovers paradise. With abundant waterways, hiking trails, parks, forests, plus nature and interpretive centers. On the southern end of Owasco Lake, Owasco Flats is an 89-acre preserve for those looking for activities on land or water, as fishing, canoeing, and kayaking are popular, as are hiking, birding, and photography. Nearby is Filmore Glen State Park, another example of natural wonder with its trails, swimming, waterfalls, and more. Whether you want to be on the water or on land, Cayuga County is your gateway to nature’s bounty.
