Update: Don’t bring snowshoes or skis as the snow is gone and we will be hiking. Be prepared for some mud on the trails. There are deep ruts in Canadice Hill Rd between Townline Rd and Harriett Hollister – travelers from Springwater should follow the directions below.
This Sunday, December 28th, Springwater Hikers will meet at the parking lot at the entrance to Harriett Hollister Spencer Park at 2:00PM. Hikers that wish should consider bringing their snowshoes 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 sports location, some trails may be easy walking even with snow and we will adjust based on conditions and snow depth.
