Sep 17, Windswept Acres -Our hike on September 17 will be in Delancey at Windswept Acres. Windswept is located at 1499 Arbuckle Hollow Delancey, New York. It will be about 2.5 miles in length. We will walk across meadows and into woodlands. There will be some hills so walking sticks would be helpful.
Those who are leaving from Oneonta and wish to carpool should meet at Price Chopper Plaza at 9:15 and expect to leave by 9:20.
You will travel to Delhi through town past McDonalds and take Sherwood Road on left. Travel over one way bridge and turn right. Turn left at golf course. Arbuckle Hollow is off from Scotch Mountain Road. Turn right on Arbuckle Hollow. Look for large blue Windswept Acres sign. Bring a bag lunch to eat among lovely gardens or return to town for lunch there. See you on Tuesday.
Happy Trails,
Roberta Austin
