Tompkins County Trail (117 mi) - explore this point of interest tour! The free form tour provides addresses for each fire, but its up to you to build your own route to bike, run, or roll! (Tompkins County Strava Trail)
The streets we walk on today would be unrecognizable to someone who walked the same street two hundred years ago. New buildings and modern growth are part of that change, but so is destruction- fires, floods, and disasters shape the landscapes on which we live.
On this tour, carve your own path through the history of the fires of Tompkins County, exploring and learning about what Tompkins County used to look like and how the people that lived here fought, and recovered from, the flames.
With 38 historic fire locations throughout Tompkins County you can do this tour biking, driving, rolling on the transportation device of your choice.
Make it to a couple stops, or do the whole trail!
