SUNY Broome Natural Area

ADDRESS

LT. VanWinkle Drive, Binghamton, NY 13905

DESCRIPTION

Through hard work by students and faculty the SUNY Broome Natural Area trail system keeps improving. The school looks at it as a living laboratory for students, but it is also open to the public. Some of the hilly trails can be tough, but there are great valley views when you get to a clearing near the top.

ACCESS

To reach the trailhead for the SUNY-Broome Natural Area, take I-81 Exit 5 and follow the signs to the campus. Turn into the entrance on Lt Vanwinkle Dr and park in the lot on the right, across from the baseball fields.

CHALLENGE – 2 miles, round-trip

The stretch of trail called out for in this challenge is short but strenuous. It requires you to hike the blue-blazed perimeter trail.  In places, you will find it very steep.
