Hiking in Onondaga County
Labrador Hollow Unique Area
The Nature Trail in Labrador Hollow Unique Area features a 2000 foot accessible boardwalk that takes you through a variety of fauna in a wetland, eventually ending up at a spectacular view of Labrador Pond with the surrounding steep hills. The complete hike on the Nature Trail is only 0.5 miles and can be enjoyed by everyone in your family.
The Nature Trail starts just past the kiosk. Be sure to look up at the large hill to the east, which is known as Jones Hill. Look closely for a "bald spot" which is known as the "Hang Glider Spot". Yes people sometimes fly hang gliders from here (with a permit from DEC). If you look even closer, you may find a few people enjoying the spectacular view. The North Country National Scenic Trail passes through the "Hang Glider Spot" as well.
From the kiosk follow the gravel path to the start of the boardwalk. Soon you will reach a split, where we recommend taking the right split. Simply follow the boardwalk in a loop, and keep straight/right when you return to the split. There are numerous benches where you can sit, read, eat a snack or lunch or just simply relax for a bit. The best spot is the view of the pond (see panorama above). There are numerous benches located there. Look below for a few pictures, a video and a map of this great short hike.
From Tully, take NY 80 east to NY 91 south. Turn right on Labrador Crossing Road, then first dirt road on left leads to a large parking area. The GPS coordinates are N42 47.644 W76 03.151 for those who have a GPS devise.
