Edgewood Golf Course Hike – Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Report by Bob Ciganek - Our ADK hike took place just off Crow Hill Road, Laurens. Twenty-one rain-be-darned happy folk were escorted on and about the outskirts of the former Edgewood Golf Course by course historian and caretaker Rowland Dutcher. Rowland's brief tour of the historic clubhouse was an unexpected addition to a morning of abandoned fairways, greens, forest and spectacular views.


Lower Riddell State Park – Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Report by Ruth Schaeffer - Sixteen adventuresome hikers and one photographer braved the forecast and hiked Lower Riddell State Park. It had sprinkled earlier and as we started out there was a slight rain shower. But as we continued, the rain stopped. We enjoyed seeing Shad trees in bloom and the river was running very fast and fuller than usual.

Basswood State Park – Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Report by Monica Peters - Eight hikers and one guest joined the leaders, Monica and Irv Peters, at the parking area on Basswood Road off County Highway 16 to snowshoe the park. Although the recent snowstorm had dumped about 3-4 feet of snow in the area, the leaders had snowshoed the trail on Sunday so it was fairly easy going.

Gilbert Lake State Park – Tuesday, February 21, 2017
