For people interested in hiking, backpacking, and camping in Western New York. Hikes include both established trails and bushwhacking through state and county forest, and Allegany State Park.

We will explore places few people in western New York ever go. We have both slow exploratory hikes and faster exercise hikes.

Family friendly hikes focused on enjoying the outdoors, although some hikes might not be appropriate for children because of the length or difficulty.

All hikes, unless specifically noted otherwise, are appropriate for both beginners and experienced hikers. No special skills are required.  No special equipment is required.  Beginners will learn what equipment they should obtain as they go along.

However, there is an article under the Discussion tab about readily available items one should bring on all hikes.  Bring what you can on your first hike.  The experienced hikers in the group will be happy to offer advice about equipment you should consider obtaining if you continue with hiking and backpacking.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
