Hooker Mountain Hike Report By Scott Fielder

June 17 started out rather ominously as a cloudy/misty day but 24 brave souls gathered at our house in Chaseville for a caravan off to Hooker Mountain, the highest point in the Town of Maryland. We enjoyed a pleasant hike on the trail through the state land emerging on Norton Road and continuing on Dog Hill Road and back to our cars on Hooker Mountain Road. In places a carpet of ferns filled the forest. I rescued several Red Efts from our many feet on the trail. Red Efts are the terrestrial stage of the Red Spotted Newt (Notophthalmus viridescens viridescens).

ACTION ALERT! Adirondack Moutain Club

DEC Plan Would Allow Floatplanes on Lows Lake for 10 More Years
Despite a 2003 promise to phase out floatplanes on Lows Lake over five years, the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) has released a plan to allow commercial floatplanes to use the lake for up to 10 more years!
ADK is urging paddlers and others interested in protecting wilderness to write to DEC and the Adirondack Park Agency and urge them to abandon this illegal and unconstitutional policy.

Hike from Goodyear Lake to Colliers Dam - May 27, 2008

Nineteen hikers met at our home on Cliffside, Goodyear Lake to walk to the State Fishing Access site along the south end of the lake and on to the Colliers dam. Even though showers were predicted and some clouds looked threatening, it turned out to be a very pleasant morning. As we walked along the railroad tracks, Scott Fielder "rescued" a turtle that seemed unable to get up over the rail. How he scurried off when set down on the other side of the rail. When we got to the lake shore, we were greeted by a catbird overhead who entertained us with a variety of songs.
