New York Clarence Fhnestock

Overview

Largest park in the area with diverse recreational opportunities on 50 miles of marked trails [including the Appalachian Trail], a variety of terrain, and numerous lakes, ponds and streams.

Description

The 14,000-acre Clarence Fahnestock Memorial State Park is in an historic iron-mining region, and several remnants of that industry remain in mine excavations, stone foundations and the old railbeds used by some trails. The park has hiking trails and multiple-use trails open to bikes and horses. There is a beach on Canopus Lake open in summer and groomed cross-country ski trails open in winter [both have seasonal fees]. A campground is located just east of the park office. Fahnestock State Park Reservations for camping are often required; see Contact Information on this site.  The terrain is varied, including hemlock gorges, bald ridge tops with 360° views, second-growth hardwood forest, mountain laurel thickets, and numerous lakes, ponds and streams.
