This week’s hike starts at Ann and Rick Laffords, 6270 McNeil Hill Rd. To get there from Main St. in Dansville, heading south on 63 leaving town, take Sahrle Hill Road, bare left until on top of the hill, then left on Sterner until it turns into McNeil Hill Rd. Follow McNeil Hill Rd until the dead end. Rick & Ann’s home is on the left. Parking is at the dead end turn-around or in the driveway. All hikers will start at Ann and Rick Lafford’s home. We will have a social after the hike at Ann’s and Rick’s. Please bring a dish to pass and your beverage – or make a donation to the social fund.
This week’s walk will cover approx. 5 miles of tree farm and forest terrain, some of it following logging trails. The hike involves two climbs of approx. 400’ but these are separated and occur over a ¼ and ½ mile distance. There is one steep descent down a logging trail.
This week’s walk will cover approx. 4 miles of tree farm and forest terrain, some of it through old vineyard. The hike involves one climb of approx. 300’ and another of 200’ but the slope is gentle and this is a relatively easy hike.
Following the hikes, you are invited to stay for a social at the house. Please bring a dish to pass or make a small ($5) donation to the social fund to help cover supplies and our hosts’ costs. Also, please bring your own beverage – which also should be a reminder to bring water for the hike. Even in cooler weather it remains very important to stay hydrated during our hikes.
