Ridge Road Hike – Tuesday, December 27, 2016

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.

Greenwoods Conservancy Hike - Tuesday, November 29, 2016

Report by Monica Peters - Nothing to report really. No one showed up yesterday. Apparently my message about the treacherous trails and probably walking the road – turned them off. TOO BAD as it wasn’t a bad day after all (got to stop believing the forecasters). Temperature comfortable and we did walk s of the trails – but not the steep one we had planned on. Our neighbor went with us and we hiked 4 miles anyway. It was a good morning after all. We’ll try Greenwoods again on another day.


Greenway hike/ski/snowshoe – Tuesday, November 22, 2016

Report by Lucille Wiggin - Four ADK friends met at the Greenway for a hike/ski/ snow shoe. It was 24 degrees, no wind and eight inches of new snow. Scott on snow shoes and Jim on skies took turns breaking trail so that Julie and I could have an easier walk. After l.6 miles we adjourned to the Eggplant for hot soup for lunches. Great start to the day.


Homer Folks State Forest Hike – Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Report by Jim and Carolyn Austin - For the first time, twenty-three hikers walked trails at the Homer Folks State Forest. The trail ‘Black Coffee’, led us around picturesque shale rock formations. The trails were developed as mountain bike paths and were leaf covered for our walk. The day was cloudy with mid 40’s temperatures. The first sprinkles of rain began as the hike ended.
