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.
The Finger Lakes Trail, from Coon Run Road to Willis Creek Leanto winds around the base of a hill that extends into the Allegheny National Forest. This hike will take us to the top of that hill and on to the Willis Creek Leanto.
The hike starts at the eastern trailhead for the Mt. Tuscarora fire tower trail. We follow that trail for a short distance, then bushwhack along the side of a feeder creek to the FLT. We then follow the FLT until we get to the base of the hill. Then we bushwhack to the top of the hill, return to the FLT, and go on to the Willis Creek Leanto for lunch.
Then we return along the FLT and the short bushwhack back to the Mt. Tuscarora trail which takes us back to the parking area.
Total of 5 miles.
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
