Set high above Cayuga Lake, the Cayuga Nature Center serves as a beloved community facility. Part education center, part recreation destination, the facility holds interactive displays and live animal exhibits indoor and out. The 120 acres of property are not solely used for hiking; deep in the woods you will find a ropes course (great for team building), a tree house and a butterfly garden, open seasonally. The center hosts local school groups, conferences and special events within its spacious lodge overlooking Cayuga Lake. Check out the center's calendar of events for upcoming activities. If you're just looking for a great place to hike, the trails are open to the public year-round.
