Explore the Great Outdoors in Madison County

Does your definition of relaxation include taking a bike ride, hiking through the woods or catching a game? Then it’s time to explore the great outdoors of Madison County!

The Brookfield Trail System has 130 miles of horseback, hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobile trails. And birders will want to visit the Great Swamp Conservancy in Canastota, it’s been named an Important Bird Area by the National Audubon Society.

Be sure to bring your bike with you. The Old Erie Canal State Park’s 36-mile “towpath trail,” which runs from Chittenango to Oneida, is perfect for those looking for a nice, level ride. Want to test your limits? Take your bicycle into the hills.

And Woodcrest Golf Club in Chittenango and the Robert Trent Jones-designed Seven Oaks Golf Course in Hamilton are among the best places to see if your golf game is up to par.

Looking to hunt or fish? Drop your line in Cazenovia Lake for largemouth bass and walleye. For hunting on State Land, set your sights on Muller Hill State Forest and Stoney Pond State Forest.

Or maybe you want to kick back and check out the NCAA action of the Cazenovia College Wildcats, Colgate University Raiders, and Morrisville State College Mustangs.

Now lace up your footwear and unwind, explore and enjoy the great outdoors of Madison County!
