NOTE CHANGE IN HIKE STARTING TIME
Have you been enjoying the aroma of boiling maple sap in the air? We’re going to enjoy this year’s Palm Sunday with a lunch of pancakes with this year’s maple syrup, followed by a revisit to a hike which our group did back in 2016. The pancake lunch will be today’s social.
We will meet at Wohlschlegel’s Maple Farm, near the east end of Coates Rd., west of Naples. For $7.00, you can get all the pancakes you can eat, 2 sausages and beverage. Their pancake kitchen opens at 8 AM but closes at 1 PM so, you will need to get there by 12:30 to enjoy your meal. If there’s time after your meal, you can enjoy tours of their farm as well as samples of some of their maple products. For more information on Wohlschlegel’s Naples Maple Farm you can check out their website at: http://www.fingerlakesbulkmaplesyrup.com/
Because you have to get there by 12:30 for your pancake lunch, we’re going to start our hike today at 1:30. We will have our usual 3 hiking groups, starting on the snowmobile trail on their farm. Mark will lead the climbers, possibly to the late Chuck Winship’s Sugarbush Hollow. John has agreed to lead the tourists, Wendy will lead the naturalists.
There will be no hike next week so, enjoy your Easter. See you in 2 weeks.
Wohlschlegel’s Maple Farm, 8064 Coates Rd. Naples. From Wayland. Go east on SR 21. Left on to CR 38. At the end, go left at the T. Left on Coates Rd. Farm is on the left, about 1/2 mile. Look for the bright purple roof. There are also signs on the road to help you. Don’t attempt to enter Coates Rd. from Pardee Hollow, as it may not be plowed and is a rough seasonal road at that end.
