Labrador Hollow and Tinker Falls

South of Syracuse, NY straddling the border of Onondaga and Cortland Counties is Labrador Hollow Unique Area, established by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, NYSDEC. Like the Finger Lakes valleys, Labrador Hollow was reamed by the passage of Ice Age glaciers, creating very steep hillsides and a flat valley bottom holding, in this case, Labrador Pond. Labrador Hollow has its own “hanging valley” as well, a short gorge that ends in Tinker Falls. A short gentle trail leads to the scenic 50-foot overhanging waterfall. In this episode of Walk in the Park (168), we’ll explore these places in early June. Watch here online anytime or on Ithaca, NY cable channel 13 at the following times over the next week:

Finger Lakes National Heritage Area; Otisco Lake

At Red Jacket Park on the shore of Keuka Lake In Penn Yan, NY Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announced on June 22, 2015 that she is introducing a bill to direct the National Park Service to begin the process towards the establishment of a Finger Lakes National Heritage Area, the 50th in the United States. In this episode of Walk in the Park (#108), we look at this exciting proposal and what it might mean for the our beautiful region. Then we take a trip to Otisco Lake, easternmost of the eleven Finger Lakes, southwest of Syracuse in Onondaga County, NY.
