Hike, Ski and Snowshoe at Harriett Hollister Spencer Park
NOTE: BE PREPARED FOR VERY COLD TEMPERATURES. NOAH PREDICTS A HIGH OF 4 DEGREES WITH A WIND CHILL OF -11 DEGREES.
We will meet at the parking lot at the entrance to Harriett Hollister Spencer Park at 2:00PM. Assuming the snow sticks around, bring gear to snowshoe, cross country ski or hike. Hikers may want to bring traction devices. We will break into groups based on the interests of the participants. If you bring an extra pair of snowshoes, you may find someone who would like to try them out. Bring water and snacks and dress appropriately for the weather with layers that are easy to add or subtract.
Hikers on boots or snowshoes will need to avoid walking on the groomed ski trails (carefully groomed by the Rochester Cross Country Ski Foundation). 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.
Because it will be New Year’s Eve, no after hike social is being planned.
