Welcome, my name is Scott Geiger. I started this site a year ago with the introduction below. I have kept to my plan of writing about my hikes on the FLT and I have even gone back and written about past hikes. Now that the weather is turning warmer it is time to get back out on the trail. I plan to continue writing about my hikes in 2016. I have now completed nearly 60% of the main trail. I am looking forward to the new adventures and incredible sights awaiting me. See you on the trail.

This is a blog I am starting to keep notes on my hiking adventures. In 2010 I discovered the Finger Lakes Trail and started hiking it near Danby, NY. I soon decided that I wanted to complete the entire trail, an end-to-end. I have slowly worked my way east along the trail and last summer (2014) reached the eastern terminus. As of the start of 2015 I have completed a little over 52% of the trail.
Most of my hikes are long hikes, at least 15 miles in a single day, and several have been more than 20 miles. My longest hike was in July 2012; I hiked 26.88 miles in 12 hours. I have done two overnight hikes, both in the Catskills. I have seen incredible scenery and views along the way and have tried to capture as much of it as I can.
My plan is to start posting my hikes here along with links to photos. I hope to give a more detailed picture of my hikes, what I experience and see along the way. So, thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy it.
