Fillmore Glen State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A long, narrow park in Cayuga County that hugs the gorge created by Dry Creek, Fillmore Glen State Park takes its name from Millard Fillmore. The thirteenth president grew up on a farm outside of the town of Moravia to the north; a replica of the humble cabin he was born in stands just inside the park entrance. Fillmore’s small, shady campground is also close to the office, with tent and trailer sites on either side of the little waterway. Each side of Dry Creek also has a restroom with showers. Fish at Owasco Lake Inlet, take a dip in the cool stream-fed pool, or picnic by the cabin. For some exercise, follow one of two hiking trails running along both rims of the gorge as well as with another trail alongside the creek bed itself, that lead past five photogenic waterfalls. A fourth route, the quarter-mile Old Gorge Trail, begins at the end of South Rim Road. Especially when hiking with children, always remember to use caution on these paths, some of which can be dangerous."
