Greetings from the Watkins Glen Public Library.
The library is in the same building as the International Motor Racing Research Center.
Watkins Glen, NY has a 6.6 mile racing route.
Watkins Glen State Park
Watkins Glen State Park, where I am camped, is on a hill above town.
When I drove in to get to my camping spot I saw a lot of the same brand of campers throught the campground. Altos were having a gathering. I had researched these campers when I was dreaming of driving the country. They are made in Canada and currently there is a two year wait to receive one once you order it.
The first morning I was in the park, I drove part-way down the hill and then walked the Gorge, which is a big feature of this park. The instructions on the campground map was to stay to the right of a pond and then go down "Coaches Staircase".
While I walked the Gorge trail, I kept saying "WOW!". The CCC's had created the stone stairs and walkways. Then I remembered Steve comparing this to the glens and caverns we visited at Hocking Hills. I texted him, "You are such a faker! This is wow, wow, wow!" OMG. It is a mile and a half from the visitors center to the end of the walkway, and all of it is beauty, water falls, and rising dramatic cliffs.

Treman State Park Hike
The trail is only 14 miles long and I didn't do the whole thing. I would do it again. It was mostly fast and downhill on the way back toward Watkins Glen.
