About Finger Lakes National Forest:
The Finger Lakes National Forest encompasses 16,032 acres, nestled between Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State in the United States of America. The forest has over 30 miles (50 km) of interconnecting trails that traverse gorges, ravines, pastures, and woodlands. Although about 3.2 million acres of New York State is in State Forest Preserves, Wildlife Management Areas, and Forests, there are few large areas of public land in the Finger Lakes Region. The Finger Lakes National Forest (FLNF) is the only national forest in New York State, and the only public land that has had an explicit philosophy of multiple use. The area around the Finger Lakes National Forest was originally inhabited by the Iroquois Indians. Information of their use of the area within the current forest boundary is sketchy at best. It is thought that at least some hunting activity occurred. This area was a forested hunting territory for the Iroquois people a mere 250 years ago.
