For this hike it looks like we’re going to have to resort to a Plan #2. Since 5 miles in the snow even with Snow shoes is looking rough, I’d like to run a shuttle to a closer location. There is an access
about ¼ mile from the eagle’s nest. I’d like to move our meeting location to a parking lot I know will be cleared at 11 Lodi Hill Road, Upper Black Eddy,
PA 18972 (directions: http://goo.gl/maps/vB0Kb).
From there we will run a shuttle to the narrows right across from the eagle’s nest. I will have a few loaner snow shoes but not enough for everyone. Please be aware that this will involve walking on River road
for a short distance but it cuts off 4 miles from the walk to the nest. I understand if you are wary of this but I believe this is the better course of
action. I will also leave it up to the group if you want to do an optional northerly trek from the nest site, but that will be a last minute decision made by the people who are there. Thank you and I look forward to seeing
everyone on Sunday.
Join us on a hike from Durham lock to the towpath adjacent to the Eagle's nest on Lynn island. The rules say we can't go to the island to see the eagles but we can try to view them from the towpath. Our environmental educator will be along to provide information on eagles as well as the history of the park. Pictures are possible but you'll need a good zoom lense for clear shots. Good shoes recommended and registration requested.
