There are over 52 miles of hiking and interpretive trails which lead visitors through areas rich in historic and scenic interest. The Gerard Hiking Trail is over 36 miles long and encompasses the entire park. The main trail is marked with yellow paint blazes. For shorter day hikes, use the five connecting loops blazed in white. Parking areas are available at several access points. Scenic vistas, waterfalls and historic sites can be seen along the trails. Two overnight hike-in Adirondacks shelter areas (Cow Run and Wolfkiel Run) are along the trail. A fee and reservations are required for use of these areas. Other special regulations pertain to these areas. Contact the park office for detailed information.
