Oct 16, SUNY Delhi Outdoor Education Ctr. - We are headed to the SUNY Delhi Outdoor Education Center for an easy, approximately 3 mile hike around the 50 acres park. Trails are well-groomed with some interesting "surprises" along the way! We will leave from the Hannaford parking lot at 9:30.
Take Rt. 28 through the village of Delhi (going towards Andes). The park is approximately 2 miles outside of Delhi, on the right. Just look for the large sign. There is plenty of parking and a rustic outdoor toilet. Questions: Glenda 432-7485 or boltongl@delhi,edu or Ruth 988-7036
