This Sunday Jan. 5th, Springwater Hikers will meet at the parking lot at the entrance to Harriet Holister Park at 2 PM. It is still snowing as of Thursday night with predictions of 8 to 12 inches. Hikers that wish,
should consider bringing their snow shoes or cross country skis. If you bring an extra pair of snowshoes, you may find a hiker willing to try them out.
Hikers on boots or snowshoes should avoid the groomed ski trails (carefully groomed by the Rochester Cross Country Ski Foundation), so we will have one hike for skiers and another for those on snowshoes or boots. Since the park is a popular winter sport location, some trails may be easy walking even with the snow and we will adjust based on conditions and snow depth.
Based on the amount of snow, we are going inside for the social. After the hike, hikers will warm up at the Hemlock Grill in Hemlock.
