Hartwick and Job Corps Trails Hike – Tuesday, January 19, 2016

Report by Aleda Koehn - Just because it had snowed all evening, and the temperature was about 15 degrees , and the wind was blowing around 30 miles per hour...no reason to cancel an ADK hike. I set my alarm so I would have time to shovel the driveway, and still make the hike location by Hartwick's Binder gym. I arrived but wondered if anyone would show up. After waiting for a bit, a car pulled in. Two hikers- Kathy and Chris Carey - all the way from Delhi !

While there was insufficient snow to ski or snowshoe, the warm temperature and absence of freezing-rain (forecasted) provided comfortable conditions. We walked the perimeter of the entire park that includes the parcel near Charlotte Creek and Susquehanna River and the hillside behind the Fortin house, about 2 miles.
