Report by Kathy Carey - On January 15, 2019, seventeen of us hiked on the Catskill Scenic Rail Trail, starting in South Kortright and hiking toward Bloomville. It was cloudy and cold, but we warmed up quickly once we started walking. The hike was a pleasant walk with good friends.


Gilbert Lake State Park – December 18, 2018

Report by Glenda Bolton - A week before the holiday and 11 ADKer's were given the magic of Christmas snow as an early present as we traversed the Red Pine Trail at Gilbert Lake State Park. A more beautiful, late fall day would not have been possible. A highlight was the call of a nearby raven, sounding much more like a dog than the poetic refrain "Nevermore." We also stopped to decorate and take photos at the Charlie Brown Tree. This hike represented the best of the holidays; being out in nature on a pristine day with great company!


Table Rocks & Strawberry Fields – December 4. 2018

Report by Aleda Koehn - On a cold and somewhat windy morning -but the first sunny day in weeks- 19 eager ADKers met to hike up to Table Rocks on Oyaron Hill above Hartwick College. Just about all of the snow seen on Saturday had gone after the Sunday rain and warm Monday, so walking was not a problem.


Susquehanna Greenway – November 20, 2018

Report by Bob Ciganek and Julia Smith - Our weekly ADK trek found eleven enthusiastic hikers armed with pruners and clippers prepared to attack much of the Susquehanna Greenway trail's unwanted greenery. The snow-covered base and trees made for a true winter wonderland. Lucille would be proud of our team effort. Photos by Julie Smith Click photo for enlargement.


Lower Riddell State Park - October 23, 2918

Report by Lucille Wiggin - The Thatcher St. Pk. hike planned for today had to be cancelled due to forecasts of rain. Two people who did go reported that it rained about noon just when we would have been eating our packed lunches. We will plan to do the hike in the spring or summer. Anyway, 12 determined hikers assembled at Riddell St. Pk. for a two mile hike and lunch at Pondo’s Restaurant.

SUNY Delhi Outdoor Education Center - October 16, 2018

Report by Ruth Schaeffer - Twenty-three hikers showed up to try a new hike for the group. It was at the SUNY Delhi Education trails. It was a beautiful day, with lots of blue sky and sunshine. No rain in sight, but a chill in the air. We followed the perimeter trail and noticed beautiful places to sit and reflect.


Texas School House State Forest - October 9, 2018

Report by Linda Pearce - Twenty-six "friendly folks" gathered on a warm autumn morning to hike about 3 miles on a woodland trail at the Texas School House State Forest in the town of New Lisbon. The forest has been marked for logging since last year which may take place in the near future. From the Lena Rd.


Stamford Rail Trail – October 2, 2018

Report by Bob Ciganek and Julia Smith - Fifteen hearty ADKers hiked/sloshed along three miles of the Catskill Rail Trail between Stamford and Hobart. A heavy downpour encouraged us to reverse direction, but not before we enjoyed a tree-lined section of trail, Bald Eagles and three humungous amanitas. We resembled a happy family of soaked muskrats at hike's end.


Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park - Tuesday, September 4, 2018

Report by Linda Pearce - A group of twenty-seven hikers gathered at Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park on Sept. 4th. We were glad to welcome five new people to our outing this morning. Even though it was quite warm and humid, most of us walked the entire Andy's Trail, a 3+ mile loop of woods and fields that goes around the perimeter of the park.
