Welcome - New Hiker
Information !

 The Triple Cities Hiking Club has been active since 1947 in promoting access to hiking destinations in New York's Southern Tier and beyond.  We are a member of the Finger Lakes Trail Conference and maintain over 30 miles of Finger Lakes Trail in eastern Chenango County, from Bowman Lake St Pk to Bainbridge, NY.

 Hikes are scheduled on most weekends throughout the year and range in degree of challenge from easy outings to very strenuous hikes in the Catskill and Adirondack Mountains. 

 Details for these events are found in the TCHC Hike Schedule, mailed to members three times a year and available digitally on this site.  The Thursday's
"Go Binghamton" entertainment section of the Binghamton Press and Sun Bulletin also lists our weekly events.

Note: Club policy prohibits dogs on hikes.

Newcomers are always welcome.
Happy Hiking and Hope to see you soon !
