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

Report by Julie Smith - All nineteen ADK'ers enjoyed the two plus mile hike around Fortin Park on Tuesday, January 10. The morning turned out to be partly sunny in spite of the weather prediction of sleet and freezing rain.

Report by Kathy Carey - Twenty hikers traveled to the Ridge Road home of Kathy and Chris Carey on Tuesday, Dec. 27, 2016, for the last hike of the year. It had rained the night before, so the route had to be re-directed due to icy conditions, but everyone enjoyed soup for lunch at the end of the hike. A highlight of the hike was a bald eagle that flew overhead at very low altitude.

Gilbert Lake State Park Hike – Tuesday, Dec 13, 2016

Report by Currie Marr - Twenty-four adventurers participated in the traditional “Charlie Brown Christmas Tree” hike at Gilbert Lake. On the western side of the lake we paused to observe and re-decorate the scraggly spruce discovered 5 years ago (12/20/11). Now the specimen is larger and more robust, but as noted by someone, the mature tree will never ever grace Rockefeller Center.
