Hiking the Finger Lakes Trail through Robert H. Treman State Park reveals a side of this New York State Park most visitors don’t get to see thanks to the beauty of Enfield Glen, another one of the trail’s scenic highlights.
Robert H. Treman State Park Overview
Like many of the other gorge landscapes throughout the Finger Lakes Region, the beauty of Enfield Glen has been nearly 10,000 years in the making.
New York State Park land signs will indicate hikers have crossed into Robert H. Treman State Park. For those thru-hiking the trail, it’s recommended to follow the blue-blazed South Rim trail after the main junction, which leads toward the park’s Gorge Trail.
The South Rim Trail not only offers scenic views at Fish Kill Overlook and a trek along the park’s incredible stone staircases and walkways carved directly into the gorge’s ancient stone, but potable water and restrooms near the Old Mill.
