I don't know about other portions, but it sounds like you're talking about the trails which connect with the Finger Lakes Trail ( http://www.fingerlakes.net/trailsystem/ ) with other tails to make the North Country National Scenic Trail ( http://www.northcountrytail.org/ )  I've got no idea parts other than the Finger Lakes Trail are like, but that portion is very much complete, with only a relatively small number of road walks, and a half dozen or so people thru-hike it every year.
