Trip Information Finger Lakes State Park is an old coal strip mine. There are a number of lakes connected by narrow waterways. The water trail consists of two color coded trails with a channel connecting them for a total paddling distance of about 5 miles. It's a much prettier place than it sounds. It is noted for being a good place to catch large bluegill and I can say from personal experience that is true. PFD required, sun protection recommended. Bring a lunch and plenty of liquids. No adult beverages to be consumed on the water. https://mostateparks.com/sites/mostateparks/files/trail_maps/Finger%20Lakes_water.pdf
