What is BACPAC?
BACPAC is the Bicycle Advisory Committee / Pedestrian Advisory Committee for Chemung, Schuyler and Steuben Counties. We are an informal group dedicated to walking, biking, hiking and other non-motorized transportation in the tri-county area.
This page will be a resource for information on how and where to be active locally. We will post updated maps of our outdoor recreational resources, including trail maps, bicycling paths and urban walking trails.
