Jan 22, Wilber Park - The ADK hike/snowshoe on Tuesday, January 22 will be Wilber Park Trails, Oneonta. Meet 10:00 a.m. at the tennis courts located on Albert Morris Drive which is at the park end of Spruce Street. If the weather is too cold the hike may be canceled. Call Bob or Julie at 432-8642 with questions.
Update: Bob and I checked the conditions this afternoon at Wilber Park and found limited parking with lots of crusty snow and ice. If you decide to hike Tuesday, be prepared for these conditions. The temperature will be around 6 degrees. We will be at the tennis court area in the morning to meet anyone who wants to come. Julie Smith
