Join us for a visit to Fort Hill, once the site of the picketed granary for Ganondagan. We’ll hike to the top of a plateau with sweeping views of valleys and hillsides across Victor. The circle around Fort Hill has 40 interpretive signs which teach us the rich history of the area. Total hiking distance is 0.7 miles, and we’ll be out for about an hour. The trail is rated 3 boots (gentle climbing required to follow the trail.)
After our hike we’ll drive back down the road to the new Seneca Art & Culture Center. Designed to fit into the natural landscape, the 17,300 sq.-ft. The center features an interactive, multi-media Exhibit Gallery, Orientation Theater (featuring the Iroquois Creation Story Film), an Auditorium, Catering Kitchen, Gift Shop and Offices.
