Report by Julie Smith - Six ADK members and two guests enjoyed a very interesting tour/hike led by John Skinner at his Cozy Haven Farm on Tuesday. Even though the weather was iffy with on-again, off-again rain showers, we enjoyed seeing the pumpkin, squash, and corn fields, the beaver lake, many snapping turtle nests, and the Karst, where a small creek disappears into the ground through eroded limestone. Lunch was at the local Tally Ho Cafe in Richfield Springs. Thanks, John, for a great hike.

New Island Hike - Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Report by Aleda Koehn - A great day for a walk. Group started at Catella Park and walked along the designated pathway along the right side of the field. To reach New Island, one has to cross the I-88 Exit, go under the highway, and then cross the I-88 entrance before walking down the hill to the trail. The park is tucked between I-88 and the Susquehanna River, somewhat noisy in places but an interesting area. The trail makes a loop through a wooded area before coming out by the Southside dam.
