Cayuga Trails Club will sponsor this 30th annual Earth Day Hike, named in memory of Tom Reimers, local conservationist and trail advocate. The hike will follow a 4.4-mile-long section of the Cayuga Trail in the beautiful Monkey Run Natural Area of Cornell Botanic Gardens. This trail takes hikers along the high banks and water’s edge of Fall Creek, and features early spring wildflowers, birds, breathtaking vistas. Wear sturdy footwear and bring drinking water and rain gear, if needed. Be prepared for steep climbs and descents; the hike is moderately strenuous. Transportation will be available at the end of the hike to take participants back to the parking area. For more information, please contact Jim Connors at

Fee:    Free

Location:   Meet at the Cornell Community Garden Plots, off Freese Road, between NY Rte 366 and Hanshaw Road. Enter the parking area from the driveway on the east side of the road.
