Report by Janice Downie. Eighteen ADK folks hiked three miles on a windy, 35 degree morning at Lower Reservoir Rd., Oneonta. A steep hill climb led us to an “ancient” White Oak Tree, over 100 years old, and measuring 15’4” in circumference. The hike continued into dense, wet woods, along old rock walls, and across hilltop pastures. From the hilltop, nice vistas were seen down the Susquehanna Valley, as well as an 8 point buck with a doe on the edge of the field.
