Fillmore Glen State Park
First visit: 06-19-2004
Finger Lakes-Wine Country, Central New York
The Fillmore Glen Gorge Trail is an approx. 2.5 to 4 mile trail. This can be done either all together as a loop, or you can do the lower gorge and then drive up to the top and then do the upper trail. Plan on at least spending 2 hours for the entire park.
Trail Update: The Gorge Trail and Cowsheds Trail are closed for the season and will reopen in 2022
Named for U.S. President Millard Fillmore, Fillmore Glen State Park is located adjacent to Moravia, in Cayuga County. A replica of the log cabin in which President Fillmore was born is located within the park.
The park has a beach, cabins, campsites with dumping stations and showers, pavilions, picnic tables, a playground, and playing fields.
