Allegany State Park: Quaker Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A massive tract of land that stretches into a national forest across the Pennsylvania state line to the south, Allegany State Park covers 65,000 acres and includes hundreds of campsites and cabins, 80 miles of hiking, and mid-sized lakes. The Quaker Area makes up the southern portion of New York’s largest park and provides fishing and boating access to the 24-mile-long reservoir created by the Kinzua Dam. Like Red House, the Quaker Area has its own small exhibit area. Built in 1925, an old camp store that once sold groceries and supplies to campers is now a visitor center and museum. Spacious campsites in the four Cain Hollow loops have a sufficient amount of separation between them and numbers 47 and 48 are handicapped accessible. Seven handicapped accessible vacation cottages named for Senator Albert T. Fancher, the Father of Allegany State Park, sleep six and include a full kitchen, a private bathroom and shower, as well as bedding and utensils. From Quaker Lake, day hikers can access the Three Sisters Trail, the Bear Caves Trail, the long-distance North Country Trail, and a path that leads to the fire tower atop Mount Tuscarora."
