State & Union: Cattaraugus County featured prominently in book on WNY hikes – Olean Times Herald

Cattaraugus County sites are featured extensively in a 2022 book on hiking and exploring, Secret Places of Western New York: 25 Scenic Hikes.

The book, published by Reedy Press, is a sequel to the late Bruce Kershner’s Secret Places: Scenic Treasures of Western New York and Southern Ontario, published in 1994 and popular with many hiking and nature buffs in the region. Indeed, Jennifer Hillman and William McKeever share authorship with Kerschner, who served as board member and chair of the Buffalo Audubon Society’s conservation committee.
