Erie County Forestry Trails and Bushwhack

This 5 mile hike will take us over the Scarbuck and FLT trails, plus a "bushwhack" along an unofficial trail marked with orange flagging. I've led hikes on this route in both summer and winter. The only possible issue is that we may have turn around and backtrack if we cannot cross Hyler Creek. If that happens, then we'll take a side trip to the old boy scout camp before returning.

The hike will start from the main parking lot on Genesee Road in the Town of Sardinia, where the sugar shack and large community center are located.

    You can create a meetup for a hike to the eternal flame under the suggested tab, then send me an email and I'll announce it to everyone

    It looks like I won't be able to make this hike. Everyone is welcome to meet and do the hike, or in the alternative, signup for the alternate hike just on the trails in Erie County Forestry that has been posted.

    I will be in Ireland. I have a day on my own in Killarney and hope to be hiking in Killarney National Park. I will be back before Labor Day and hope to hike with you again before you have your next surgery, Gary.

    I have to do some juggling of this hike and the hike scheduled for August 2. The FLTC needs volunteers to complete the re-route of the trail through Little Rock City. I'll post the specifics as soon as I get them later today or tomorrow. Instead of the scheduled hikes for the 2nd and the 16th, I'll post a meetup for volunteers to help with the trail work and then move this hike to another date. However, if enough people show up on Aug 2 and the trail is completed, then we can just use it for a hike on the 16th.
