Report to Hikers: week of Dec 10-Dec 16

Hello Hikers!

I’m happy to report that we fixed the way the photos display  —  you can now click on any photo and see a large high-resolution version.  I also went back and repaired the links in last week’s hike report so all those photos are now clickable.

New trail from lower Buttermilk Falls SP to the cemetery on Stone Quarry Road

The temperature was just above freezing  —  the condition when microspikes are likely to clump up and make it almost impossible to walk smoothly.  Photo by Jack V

Special out-of-town hike  —  Steege Hill, Corning

Photos and hike report by Jack V

Jack’s report:   4 of us did the first of the longer hikes at SteegeHill.  We hiked 7 miles in 3 1/2 hours.  Steege Hill earned its name ‘hill’, most of the hike was either going up or down.  All of the hike was in the woods so there were limited views.
