Fitness Trail Opening in Village of Cayuga

It is with great pleasure that the Village of Cayuga is announcing the opening of the fittness loop of the Cayuga Village Recreation Trail. The ribbon cutting will take place Tuesday, October 30 at 4:30 pm at the trailhead at McIntosh Park in the Village of Cayuga off Genesee Street. Follow the park road to the baseball fields and meet at the trailhead across from the concession stand. Please come dressed for the weather as rain is predicted for that day. The fittness loop winds through a beautiful wooded section of the park adjoining with the Cayuga Elementary School property. It consists of 6 exercise stations with instructional signage at each station. The trail surface is wood chips and the stations have been located to provide a private but readily visable setting. When complete, the Cayuga Village Recreation Trail will provide a 2.5 mile loop through the village of Cayuga. The loop will connect the village offices on the lakefront at Harris Park with nearly 1/2 mile of publicly owned lakefront. It then winds past the future home of the Cayuga Wellness Center and east to the Cayuga Elementary School where it connects with the fittness and nature loops at McIntosh Park. A stone dust surface is planned to circle the athletic fields providing opportunity for the “soccer parents” to streach out while their children practice. At present the loop is completed by traveling west on Genesee St back to Harris Park, but a dream of the organizers is to gain access to property that would allow Salato Gardens, a 55 and older community to be tied into the loop. The trail also provides lake access to canoers and kayakers, and in the future it is planned to access the NYSDEC owned islands at the north end of Cayuga Lake. Access is free and open to the public. For more information you can search Facebook for the “Cayuga Village Recreation Trail” or visit the village offices for a preliminary map or e-mail us at [email protected] We are a work in progress, so stand by for more. To volunteer to help build the trail you may contact the trail committee chairman, Carl Cuipylo at 315-730-5940.
