Finger Lake Trail Hike – Tuesday, May 3, 2011

Report by Rita Salo When John and I checked out our Tuesday, May 3, 2011 hike, we did it on the Saturday before. The trail was a bit of a mess. There was water in many places on the trail. The streams that the trail crossed were very high. There were blowdowns. The white blazes on the trees were kind of dull and a bit hard to see. So I tried to prepare people for what was there. Rain was predicted for the day.
On Tuesday, 17 of us went a-walking. The first thing we noticed was that the blazes on the trees had been repainted. Most of the water on the trails had disappeared. It left mud, but the walking was easier. The streams were low enough to cross easily. When we got to the blowdowns, someone had cut a chainsaw opening through the downed trunks. It didn’t rain and the sun came out while we were walking. It turned out to be a delightful hike. Some of us stopped at the quaint General Store in Masonville to eat and to enjoy the interesting wares.
