Note: If you put your name on the waiting list then you will get an email inviting you to decide whether or not you are going to join in this hike a few days before the hike. The first 12 people who respond to that email will be listed as participants in the hike. Those who don't respond to the email will remain on the waiting list which will then operate as a normal waiting list.
I go on these hikes whether or not anyone else joins in, but I need to know if others are joining as I will wait at the trailhead for late arriving participants.
This hike will start at the other side of Mount Baldy. We park on ASP 2 near the intersection with Bay State Road (just before the Park entrance station, so there won't be an admission charge to the park. Get off at Exit 19).
We will climb to the "Indian Fort", then go on to the leanto for lunch, before returning to our cars. Total mileage of about 5.5. All of it along the Finger Lakes Trail except for the short bushwhack up Old Baldy to the "Indian Fort".
As you can see from the elevation profile, the initial 1.75 miles is a steady climb of about 700 Feet on the FLT and another 100 feet on the short bushwhack portion to the "Indian Fort". As always, we'll go slow enough to accommodate all participants.
A waiver of liability will be required. You can download it, fill it in on your computer, then return it to me by email. Failure to return the waiver will preclude you from participating in this hike. Here is the link to the release form: Release of Liability
