The Hammond Hill State Forest Multiple Use Trail System has been designed to offer family-based recreation for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and cross-county skiing. A snowmobile trail and the Finger Lakes Hiking Trail also cross the forest. The 16 mile trail system is a cooperative effort between the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Lands and Forests, the Cayuga Nordic Ski Club, the Cayuga Nature Center, the Friends of Hammond Hill and the town of Dryden. There is a short section of the trail system in the northwestern portion of the forest that is designated as an accessible trail for those with mobility impairments. One must have a DEC permit in order to access this trail with an ATV. Please refer to the DEC website for additional information on permitted recreational use on this forest. Also consider using the State Lands Interactive Mapper available on the DEC website at http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/45415.html to view the current recreational opportunities on State Forests.
