Finger Lakes National Forest strives to make our facilities, programs, and services accessible to all people. Our office, located in Hector on Route 414, is located in an accessible facility. The Forest continually upgrades facilities to incorporate universal design to ensure the integration of all people, to the greatest extent possible, without separate or segregated access for people with disabilities. This means everyone benefits – from people with disabilities, families with young children, and older people.
Pay attention to the weather and please come prepared. Weather can play a role in making a normally accessible site inaccessible on a temporary basis as tree branches may fall across a trail or heavy rains may wash out gravel surfacing.
Facilities include accessible vault toilets and accessible site furnishings (fire rings and picnic tables) at some sites. Campsites, pathways and roads have compacted gravel or soil surface.
|Accessible Fishing Locations|
Facilities include accessible parking and accessible trail to pond.
ROGs (Recreation Opportunity Guides) can be made available in large print. Please call ahead so we may have copies prepared.
People with disabilities may qualify for a free Interagency Access Pass http://www.fs.fed.us/passespermits/access.shtml (formerly a Golden Access Passport http://www.fs.fed.us/passespermits/goldens.shtml) which allows discounts on camping as well as free entrance into many National Parks and Recreation Areas. Seniors over 62 qualify for an Interagency Senior Pass http://www.fs.fed.us/passespermits/senior.shtml
