Join Outdoor Pursuits for a hike on our adopted portion of the Finger Lakes Trail. This will be a gentle, flat and methodical 6-mile hike with many stops to remove any fallen limbs from heavy winter snows and check that the trail still has its proper markings. Notes will be made for future projects.

In neighboring Pennsylvania, there is a unique state park! Three waterfalls and pioneer tales shroud this stand of virgin eastern hemlocks. Come hike along the water and beneath these magnificent trees! Wear shoes that can wet, bring a backpack with a water bottle and snacks.
