In Cazenovia, we are fortunate to have beautiful places to hike, walk our dogs, run, bike and ski, but how did this come to be?

Who maintains CPF’s trails? Where are all the CPF trails located? What else does CPF do for our community?

Join us on Saturday, October 10, at any one of our five trails to find out!

Visit with CPF Board members and staff, pick up some Critz Farm cider and popcorn for a trail snack, and take a self-guided walk on one of the trails. Your participation helps to support conservation in your community.


Featured Raffle Prize: One-week stay at a private Adirondacks vacation property near Gore Mountain.

For $1/shovelful we’ll load up your bucket with gravel, then you and your family can walk a short distance (approximately 250 feet) to the muddy spot on the trail, dump your bucket, and either turn around and come back for more or continue on for a longer walk with your family.

For an add-on cost of $40, you will get a five-minute individual or family shoot at a single location near the Burlingame trail. Afterwards, select your two favorite photos onsite; the high-quality digital images will be edited, if needed, and delivered to you in 7-10 days via the email address on file. Ordering of prints may be arranged directly with the photographer. While we may be able to accommodate some day-of-event requests, pre-purchase is preferred.
