6775 Canadice Hill Road
Hike, Ski and Snowshoe at Harriett Hollister Spencer State Recreation Area
We will meet at the parking area at 2:00PM. Although there is record breaking cold this week, temperatures are forecast to be in the 40’s on Sunday with the possibility of rain. 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. Having your own map is always a good idea – here is a link to a winter trail map.
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.
The after hike social will be at The Boat House Grill, 5226 East Lake Road, Honeoye, NY
