Chestnut Ridge Park - Casino to Eternal Flame

  • Chestnut Ridge Park

    Orchard Park, New York, Orchard Park, Ne (map)

    42.721302 -78.745445

  • This hike will start at the north end of the Orange trail. We park at the Casino lot and walk down the road .2 mile to the trail head. Google map here:

    This is not the typical hike to the Flame from Seufert Road or the Corral Parking lot.

    Total hike (out and back) will be about 5.5 miles. We may explore the loop trail in the center of the park instead of hiking all the way to Seufert so be flexible.

    A waiver of liability will be required.  You can download it, sign it, then scan and return it to me by email, fax, or bring a signed copy with you to the hike. (Send me an email through the meetup system and request either the email address for a scanned copy or the fax number for a fax copy.) Here is the link to the release form: Release of Liability

    Aerial and Topo maps of the trail can be seen here:

    (Disregard the references to the Eternal Flame and Corral parking lot as we will be hiking the orange trail and parking at the Casino.)

    Here is a link to a picture of the trail map at the trail head - note the warning about climbing up and down ravines.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
