Once we get some more participants on this new thread, we can start talking about snowshoe hikes to do on Saturday and possible Sunday. I know there is a fire tower just north of this site, so that would probably be a great destination.
The only two fire towers that I'm familiar with are on Sugar Hill which is south west of our site (west of Watkins Glen) and the other is on Connecticut Hill which is quite a bit east of us between Elmira and Ithaca.
Our site is actually on the Interloken Trail which is a spur off the Finger Lakes Trail. From our site (Fosters Pond), the Interloken trail continues north for about five to six miles and stops. It's about four to five miles south from Fosters back to the Finger Lakes trail. There are other trails which cross and run parallel to the Interloken trail which make for a variety of loop trails.
There are many really nice sections of the Finger Lakes Trail within a very short drive of our location. I have a complete map set of the Finger Lakes Trail and can make some copies of that area, if folks want to venture farther away.
For those who may be inclined there are MANY wineries along Rt 414 overlooking the Lake with daily wine tastings. Many are within a twenty minute drive of the camp site.
