As the traveler on the ice cream trail, your job is simple. You can pick up an ice cream trail map at the Cortland County Visitors Center at 42 Main Street in Cortland, or at one of the participating locations.

Each participant will also be given a punch card, and at each stop along the trail, a new hole will be punched in your card as you purchase your ice cream.

Not only that, but each person who completes the trail will be entered into a raffle, and one lucky winner will win a $100 gift card to their favorite ice cream shop in Cortland County.

The winner will be drawn on the last day of summer, so you have until then to visit the area and complete the new ice cream trail.
