Hike to Rattlesnake Cliffs

We will hike from the Silver Lake parking lot up past the Falls of Lana to the Rattlesnake Cliffs which offer a great view of Lake Dunmore, Silver Lake and the Adirondacks during a clear day. The elevation gain is about 900 feet. Pack a snack to eat at the top and we’ll plan to grab a meal in Brandon afterwards.

I am cross-posting this with another MeetUp group.

More info: http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_MEDIA/stelprdb5315864.pdf

Directions:
From points south – Head north on Route 7. About 5 miles north of Pittsford, take a right onto McConnell Rd (at a ‘Y’ with a Citgo station). Continue 3.3 miles until you take a right onto Route 73 (Forest Dale Rd.) After a half a mile, take a left onto Route 53. Follow that for 5.3 miles. The parking area will be on your right (it’s a long, skinny paved parking lot).

From points east – From Route 100, travel 13.6 miles east on Route 73. Turn right onto Route 53, and follow it 5.3 miles. Trailhead parking is a long, skinny paved parking lot, located on the right.

From points north – Travel south on Route 7 to its intersection with Route 53. Follow Route 53 for 3.9 miles. Trailhead parking is a long, skinny paved parking lot, located on the left.

    Ugh. I was hoping it would be clearer cut as to what the weather is going to do. It's frustrating knowing it could possibly end up cloudy but dry or we could get drenched. I am going to err on the side of caution and cancel it. I may do the hike later this month but I haven't decided yet. Sorry everyone! I was looking forward to it.

    The weather isn't looking good for Sunday, yet again. I'll keep an eye on it through tomorrow but it is looking like I might cancel or postpone again. I will send another message tomorrow evening to let you all know the plan.

    You two already know this, but so it is stated, I am postponing this until Sunday Oct. 6th because the weather is iffy for tomorrow and I'd rather know it is going to be a nice day.

      Hey Joe! It will be great to see you as well. Haven't seen you in so long. My knee/leg is better and I have been doing some shorter, easier hikes, but from experience I know I will feel it on the way down. The only question will be how much.
