The Cayuga Lake Scenic Byway (CLSB) Geotrail is divided into two sections – east and west. Geotrail logbook passports are available at the locations listed below. As this program has been around for several years, some caches have been archived and some caches may be missing punches. If you find a punch missing, just take a photo of the box to document that you found it. We apologize for the changes in our program and we are working to bring it back to its original state.

You can also download and print the LogBook Punch Sheet to take on your trek!
