Hiking in Upstate NY is a great way to take in the four seasons and experience the heartbeat of nature including a wide variety of birds & wildlife  in their natural habitat.


Birding is a fun activity that anyone can enjoy
, and new Trails are being added across the State all the time. Birding, or 'birdwatching,' is one of the fastest growing outdoor recreational activities that can be enjoyed by all ages and abilities, plus it's a great way to get outdoors. Click the New York State Birding Trail  image to get maps and more information.


The Regions of Uptate NY offer a mixed terrain of mountains & valleys, forests & grasslands, lakes & rivers, marshes and more - where you can observe as many as 800 varieties of plants and over 200 species of birds - including Snowy Owls, Hawks, American Eagles, Egrets, Green Herons, and colorful migrators. So grab your hiking boots, a map, and camera (really, any camera - including your mobile phone - will do), along with a pair of binocs, and get ready to bond with Nature
