Report by Ruth Schaeffer. Fifteen hikers arrived at Lower Riddell State Park ready to hike the trails. The forecast wasn’t the greatest, but it was still a lovely morning for a hike. We started out going up the hill and to the left so we could go over the bridge put in by the Boy Scouts a few years back. We saw some late blooming wild flowers and a field of winter wheat planted between the two trails. The Schenevus Creek was moving right along, but was quite muddy with the latest round of showers we have had.
Once we got to the curve in the creek we noticed a few showers and by the time we started out again it was raining quite hard. I decided to go directly to the cars, and not visit the bridge. We had managed to hike approx. 2 miles anyway, so everyone else decided the cars were a good choice. Glad to get a short hike in, anyway we could.
