Biking Through the Seneca Army Depot

April 30, 2018 at 1:58 pm Leave a comment

The former Seneca Army Depot occupied over 10,000 acres between Seneca and Cayuga Lakes. It was used as a munitions storage facility from 1941 until the 1990s. The Depot was formally shut down in 2000. During earlier years it was controversial for storage of nuclear weapons.

Totally the land is being used to protect a rare herd of white deer that have been allowed to populate inside the fence for decades.

We enjoyed the first bike tour. Future visitors will be able to visit by bus and bike. Funds generated will help to protect the deer.
