The Interloken Trail traverses the Forest from north to south and is a branch of the Finger Lakes Trail system. It passes through various terrain and vegetation. Southern portions are somewhat steeper and more forested; northern portions are flatter, more open, and travel through pasture lands. Please close gates behind you. This trail can be wet in the spring and fall. Plan a stop at the Foster Pond and Teeter Pond areas or make a shorter loop hike with one of the several intersecting trails. There are outstanding vistas to the west, including views of Seneca Lake. Please practice Leave No Trace ethics, such as carry out what you carry in.
Horses are allowed on the trail from the southern end of the trail to the Burnt Hill Trail.
Mountain bikes and horses are allowed on the north end of the trail between Seneca and Parmenter Roads.
Note: Trails are closed to horse users from March 15th thru May 1st due to muddy conditions
