Report by Sarah Patterson. It started out a bit brisk but the forecast called for a warmup and by the end, several of us were in shirtsleeves! We had thirty-one hikers to hike Andy’s Trail in Betty and Wilbur Davis State Park. It was a good thing I had scoped it out the day before because the trail was almost indiscernible! So many leaves down. There obviously needs to be trail markers more often!! Maybe this would be a good ADK project.
It’s a beautiful trail through woods, fields and along streams. There are ups and downs, so quite a bit a variety. The official length is 2.7 miles but my device told me 2.9 miles, probably spent looking for a trail marker! Some of us elected to walk the road after the initial hike through the woods.
There was also some excitement as the State Trooper K-9 unit was on the premises working the dogs. We definitely felt safe!
