Hiking club receives grant to replace lean-to on Finger Lakes Trail

PHARSALIA A dilapidated lean-to on a portion of the Finger Lakes Trail that cuts through Chenango County will be replaced thanks in part to a grant from a county committee.

Members of the Chenango County Planning and Economic Development Committee agreed last week to promote use of the trail with financial support for a new shelter within the Town of Pharsalia. The committee granted $2,000 to the Chenango County Bullthistle Hiking Club toward the estimated $3,000 lean-to.

Trail volunteers build and maintain 30 temporary shelters across New York State during three weeks of every summer. The state Department of Environmental Conservation provides the logs and volunteers build and repair the structures.
