Long Point State Park trail system
In the Fall of 2013, community volunteers, with the approval of the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, developed a new trail system on the east side of New York Route 90, which divides the formerly undeveloped inland section of the park from the waterfront section. The new trail system features secluded picnic tables and hilltop views of Cayuga Lake. A section of the trail system runs along the top of a small gorge.
