Report by Linda Pearce. As we gathered in the parking lot at Sunset Pavilion a light mist was in the air which became a light drizzle for the first portion of our hike. This didn’t dampen the spirits of the twenty-two hikers as we trekked along the 2.7 mile Andy’s Trail that goes around the perimeter of Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park. This 229 acre property is like a hidden gem in Otsego County. Our walk took us on rolling forest trails, along a woodland stream, into a field of goldenrod, purple asters and black-eyed Susans, through a conifer plantation and along old stone walls. A few people stayed after the hike to eat lunch at the pavilion.
