Every year Day Treks takes about 30 freshmen on three separate day hikes, through Letchworth State Park, Griffis Sculpture Park, and Stony Brook. Each day will be a new adventure through the New York wilderness as we experience hiking trails, streams, sculptures, and even the occasional swimming area.  We will be staying in cabins at Letchworth State Park that offer some of the most spectacular views of the stars at night. This trip is one of the least demanding and great for anyone who wants to get out and enjoy Western New York’s magnificent surroundings.
