Pine Lake Hike – Tuesday, April 17, 2018

Report by Aleda Koehn - Nine ADKers braved cold, snow showers, and rain, and arrived at Hartwick's Pine Lake Campus. The original plan was to hike to Mud Lake but with all the past rain, and streams overflowing, and no wild flowers yet to be seen, it was decided to walk the Pine Lake property instead. We had a pleasant hike in spite of occasional flurries of snow.


Susquehanna Greenway -Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Report by Linda Pearce - Fifteen people met to walk the 2.5 mi. Greenway trail along the Susquehanna River. We were amazed to see all the recent beaver activity along the river. Many sapling-size trees had been removed and larger ones had been gnawed. One of the early signs of spring was evident with the emergence of skunk cabbage.


South Hill State Forest - Tuesday, April 3, 2018

Report by Bob Ciganek -South Hill State Forest welcomed 13 ADKers on this snowy April 3rd morning. Snow still covered most of our path which made for a quiet and surreal spring day. Even the birds were silent. This site deserves a late spring revisit. Photos by Betsy O'Brien Click photos twice for maximum enlargement.

Pine Lake Hike – Tuesday, February 26, 2018

Report by Bob Ciganek - Eighteen ADKers enjoyed a spring-like hike on the Pine Lake red and blue trails. Even though a ruffed grouse attempted to lead a few astray, conversation and laughter prevailed. A nesting pair of bald eagles highlighted our three mile experience. Photo Credits: Betsy O’Brien.


Gilbert Lake State Park Hike – Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Report by Aleda Koehn - After snow, cold, heavy rain, warm, and predictions of more showers, Tuesday turned out to be a beautiful day in our neighborhood - sunny and in the fifties. A group of 20 came out for a welcome respite from winter. Four of the group started to walk around the lake in a counter clock wise direction but found portions of the trail icy.


Lower Riddell State Park - Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Report by Linda Pearce - After a few weeks of bad weather on hike day, we finally had a nice, sunny morning for our outing at Lower Riddell Sate Park. Thirteen of us hiked a 2.6 mile trail through the park. We found the walking rather "challenging" as we maneuvered around icy, crusty and rough conditions. Following the hike, a few of us went to Pondo's for lunch.
