Outdoor Recreation

Schuyler County is home to miles of hiking and biking trails.  These trails pass through rolling hills, marshlands, forests and natural glacier-formed caverns. Most of these trails are open year-round, making it a great place to see fall foliage in autumn, go cross-country skiing in winter, see the new wildlife in spring and enjoy the warm summer sun.
