The Loop hikes are east of the Swain ski area and will start from a parking area at the end of Mill St and across from the tubing hill. Parking may be limited, especially during ski season, so car pools are recommended.
Hikers are welcome to carpool from the Town Hall in Springwater or from the Municipal Parking lot on the right side of Clara Barton St (Rt 36) in Dansville across from Church St. If you do not carpool, we will meet at Mill St in Swain. Since you may need to drive as part of the carpool, please bring these directions with you.
Carpool from Springwater: meet at the Town Hall on Rt 15, 0.2 miles south of the flashing light. Please meet at 1:00 and be ready to leave promptly at 1:15 for Swain.
Carpool from Dansville: meet at the Municipal Parking behind the Sunrise Inn at 1:15. We will leave promptly at 1:30 and drive to Swain.
