On Feb 17 we will visit Cumming Nature Center in the hills above Naples NY on Day 2 of their Annual NordicFest Weekend for hiking/skiing/snowshoeing, depending on conditions. The festival is a fund raiser for the Genesee Valley Nordic Ski Patrol, and includes a host of activities with winter sports, winter wear, food, and Scandinavian culture – see:
If conditions permit, skis and snowshoes will be available for rental ($15), or bring your own. We will provide an update on the SWT web site Saturday/Sunday on trail conditions. The social will be before the hike, beginning at 12:30.
Cumming is a branch of Rochester Museum and Science Center. If you are not a member of RMSC, there is a small fee for access to the Center. Group fees have been paid by SWT, so just identify yourself, at the desk, as part of Springwater Trails Hiking Group.
Our hikes will begin at 2 PM. You also may want to sign up for the Ski Orienteering program offered from 12:00 to 2:00 by Rochester Orienteering Club – see https://roc.us.orienteering.org/event-2782708 This costs $5 for a single person, or $9 for a group. The program will proceed on skis or on foot.
There are several interesting trails (The Beaver Trail and Conservation Trails are great), and some trails may be limited to cross country skiers. Maps will be available. We will split into groups and enjoy a nice walk. Ski Patrol members will be monitoring the trails throughout the afternoon, so no one will get lost.
Social – Our social gathering will be in the Nature Center Building beginning at 12:30 in the lower level dining area (with fireplace). We encourage members to patronize the food services offered by the Ski Patrol, who will be selling locally-sourced chili (vegan/vegetarian options available), cornbread, cider and baked goods on site for $10 between 11:00 and 2:30, or you can bring your own food and beverages. Afterwards we will gather back at the fireplace between 4 and 5 for warm-up and an exchange of desserts (dish-to-pass).
