Auxiliary Services, CPDC Enhance Drumlins Trail System
For years, members of the University community have enjoyed the use of the trail system around the golf course at Drumlins Country Club for hiking, jogging, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. The trails, which are open to use from sunrise to sunset, are also a resource utilized by the greater Central New York community.
Over the past few months, Auxiliary Services and a team from Campus Planning, Design and Construction have undertaken an effort to add modifications to the area for the safety of those who utilize the trail system. A fence has been installed along the south side of the 13th tee of the East Course to protect individuals from the sharp drop-off in the area. Signage has been posted at several trailheads and areas where community members enter the property to outline safe usage of the trail system. Additional signage about dangerous drop-offs, especially in the area surrounding the neighboring stone quarry, will be installed soon.
All community members—and their leashed four-legged friends—are welcome to use the Drumlins trails. “The trail system is a wonderful community asset,” says Kris Klinger, senior associate vice president for Auxiliary Services. “We hope for it to be utilized safely for many years to come.”
Kinger adds that community members are asked to practice “Leave No Trace” principles while in the area, and to leave bicycles and motorized vehicles, except motorized wheelchairs, at home.
