New York’s parks and trails are awesome. And we want everyone to know it. Because the more people know about these unmatched outdoor resources, the more they will get out and enjoy them. And the more they will care about protecting them for New Yorkers today…and future generations.

That’s why we tout them whenever and wherever we can. And why we organize events that allow people to experience our parks and trails, why we published our popular cycling guidebooks and why we developed online tools such as TrailFinder and our interactive Erie Canalway Trail map.

Our monthly eNews and quarterly newsletters, You Gotta Have Friends for park lovers and Canalway Trail Times, also highlight the great places in New York to hike, bike, camp, kayak, picnic, or just get out and enjoy nature.
