Riddell State Park Hike – Tuesday, September 14, 2010

On a sunny September day, 9/14, twenty-one hikers met at the parking lot for the lower entrance of Riddell State Park. We had some new people and even a little one being pushed in a stroller. We started out at about 9:50 and traversed most of the trails at the park. We went through woods and fields, and stopped for gorp at picnic tables near Schenevus Creek. We went on a side trail created this summer that paralleled Schenevus Creek with two good viewing spots. We returned to the parking lot via the old railroad bed and were surprised to see five more ADK members there, relaxing after their hike! They thought the hike was to start at 10 and arrived just after we left. We were all hiking all through the park and never saw each other. They had called, shouted, and even yodeled, but we never heard them! We had doubled back at one time, to lengthen the hike, and so they were actually ahead of us instead of behind as they had thought. In spite of the mix-up we all had a good time. Some from each group then went on to eat lunch at Pondos.  Report by Scott Fielder
