APR 25, Lower Riddell State Park - The hike will start at 10:00 a.m. Those wishing to carpool may meet at Price Chopper at 9:40 a.m. and travel down I-88 to the Cooperstown exit. Turn left and take your first right into the park. I will meet the group at the park. I am hoping that the weather will cooperate and we can have a picnic after the hike is over.
