Catharine Valley Trail opens in Watkins Glen

WATKINS GLEN—The Watkins portion of the Catharine Valley Trail was officially opened Saturday, June 6.
The ceremony was held at the Seneca Harbor Park where Friends of the Catharine Valley Trail were joined by some Schuyler and Chemung County legislators, Watkins Glen’s mayor, Assemblyman Thomas O’Mara, and Sen. George Winner. After the ceremony, the Friends of the Catharine Valley Trail walked the Watkins portion of the trail to the high school where they held their annual meeting.
The original plans were to have the Watkins end of the trail at the state park. However, Michelle Benjamin, president of the Friends of the Catharine Valley Trail, said the village thought it was important to make the trail go the lake. Mayor Judy Phillips said the work started 10 years ago on the whole trail and now Watkins has a 1.2 mile walking trail that connects to the completed portion through the Catharine Marsh. The route, along Decatur Street, is marked with painted race cars on the sidewalk, heading towards the school.
Other parts of the trail are also nearing completion. Tim Joseph, director of New York State Parks’ Finger Lakes region, said the Johnson Hollow Bridge near Millport was completed the day prior. However, it is not open yet. O’Mara said he would like the trail to extend all the way down to Hanover Square in Horseheads. Benjamin said they hope the whole trail will be complete by the end of this year.
