As footsteps traverse the forest floor, brightly colored leaves trickle from the hardwoods, swirling deep down into the secluded hollows. A gentle thermal slides up the slope, the soft touch elevates the soul. Once atop Western New York’s highest point, temporary trail signs loom ahead explaining the history of the massive rock formations, noting flora and fauna specimens, and historical artifacts. RidgeWalk & Run is one of the area’s largest and certainly one of the most totally unique fall active lifestyle events.
