The Finger Lakes National Forest encompasses 16,259 acres (65.80 km2) of Seneca and Schuyler counties, nestled between Seneca Lake and Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State in the United States of America. The forest has over 30 miles (50 km) of interconnecting trails that traverse gorges, ravines, pastures, and woodlands.

Although about 3.2 million acres (1300 kmĀ²) of New York state is in State Forest Preserves, Wildlife Management Areas, and Forests, there are few large areas of public land in the Finger Lakes Region. The Finger Lakes National Forest (FLNF) is the only national forest in New York State, and the only public land that has had an explicit philosophy of multiple use.
