Last Gasp of Winter
Feb 26 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

current conditions at 10:00am

It looks like this Sunday will be much colder than last week at Pam’s. But come and enjoy anyway – and bring a friend.

The week we are returning to the Schribner Valley, for a hike that will show off the under-story of the forest before all the spring growth occurs. With high temperatures this week, we don’t expect much snow to be left.But the ferns were out last week and there should be more signs of life this week.

We will have two hikes this week.  The Climbers will hike across the valley and the head south though mostly pine woods. After about a mile, we will head up to the top of the hill and enjoy some views across the fields. Expect some bush-whacking as we head back down and follow the stream back to the house and the social.

The Naturalists and Tourists will follow the same route for the first half of the hike, but will avoid the long climb to the high fields, instead spending a bit more time with the more accessible views.

Following the hikes, we will have a potluck social. Linda is making pulled pork.  Bring a dish to pass and your own beverage or make a $5 donation to the social fund. Coffee or tea will also be available.

Directions Click here for Winter directions. Do not try to come in from Strutt St. since both Schribner and Giles are seasonal.

Rob’s Trail @ TNC Parking Area West Side of Route NY 15A
Mar 5 @ 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm

2:00 p.m.  (Climbers: plan to arrive at 1:30 if wanting to help with a car pool to the parking lot at the north end boat launch. Please see below).

Parking Lot Sign

Join us for an early spring hike on the new section of Rob’s Trail, which meanders from Route 15A south of Hemlock, to the shores of Hemlock Lake.  On the hike you will cross a new bridge across a ravine, installed since our last hike on Rob’s Trail a year ago.  With all of the recent rain and snow melt the streams by the trail should be flowing like crazy!  We will meet at the new parking lot for Rob’s Trail on the west side of 15A. (If there is insufficient space in this lot, use the parking lot a little way south across the road.  Instead of walking on the road from there to the meeting place, you may take the connector trail which is about a quarter mile long, if desired).  It is suggested that you wear sturdy hiking boots, and use a pole because of slippery leaves on steep inclines.

Climbers:  you may choose to hike down to Hemlock Lake and connect to the trail leading to the north and terminus (4.8 miles) at the Hemlock Lake boat launch.  This will necessitate leaving one or more cars at the parking lot before the hike.  Tourists:  you may hike down the trail to the shore line and return back up to the starting point (1.5 miles each way).  The hike back up is fairly strenuous in some places.  Naturalists: you may hike halfway down to the new bridge and back up from there.

The social following the hike will take place at Sammy’s Place, 8148 S Main Street in Springwater.

Directions: Click here for directions to the parking lot at the top of Bald Hill. To get to Sammy’s Place, head south on 15A through the Springwater Hamlet.  Sammy’s is on the right across from the Fire Hall.
