Whether you're planning to visit Watkins Glen, have visited many times, or are a resident, there is one book you must purchase. The Watkins Glen Tour Guide by Gordon Cooper is one of the most informative books I've come across about the are. Gordon grew up in the area and wanted a book on Watkins Glen but there wasn't one out there. He ended up deciding to tackle the beast himself and wrote this masterpiece. The photos alone are worth the purchase. The book is full of history, insider tips and even self-guided trail maps. You can purchase the book at local places in Watkins Glen and throughout Finger Lakes Wine Country, but also online. Here's a message from Gordon himself!
