Hiking in Onondaga County
Onondaga County Parks
Enjoy over 50 miles of trails on 2729 acres at Highland Forest County Park, which is sometimes called the "Adirondacks of Central New York". Established in the 1930's, this is the oldest Onondaga County Park and contains more than 2000 acres of rugged forest terrain. The park offers free maps available at Skyline Lodge. We have posted a map below or check out a pdf version of the map here --> Highland Forest County Park Hiking Trails Map
The self-guided Nature Trail is the perfect introductory hike. The park also has over four miles of the North Country National Scenic Trail that travels through park. All the park trails are well marked and maintained. Try out our very own 4.2 mile Arab Hill Loop that utilizes part of the NCT.
For those looking for a more challenging hike, then try out the nearly nine mile main park trail loop. Just be sure to pack plenty of water and snacks, plus plan on giving yourself at least five hours to complete the long, strenuous hike.
