Report by Currie Marr – On a 96 degree day 18 people elected to hike on Hartwick public land in Arnold Lake State Forest. The trail went through a mature forest that sometimes consisted of mixed hardwoods, or of old plantations of Pine or Spruce. Surprisingly, hiking conditions were nearly ideal because of tree-shade, periodic breezes and a relatively flat terrain. Six ADKers opted to walk 2 miles and 12 others completed the full 4 miles. Where we stopped for a snack and water, Doug Fielder took a group picture and Scott Fielder focused on a Leopard Frog.
