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).
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.
Jim and Pati Clark are presenting a talk on the history of their Maple Farm and syruo making in Springwater. Join the Springwater – Webster Crossing Hustorical Society for a pancake dinner at 6:30, followed by the talk.
