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.

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.

Fortin Park Hike – Tuesday, January 10, 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. Quite a number of Canada Geese were in the large field near the dock and did not seem to be bothered by us as we walked by them.
