    Ryan,
    Thanks for a great way to spend a Saturday. Entering the park via the FLT was a great idea. Everything was scenic with time to enjoy it.
    Well done!

    I was hoping to make the hike but having foot pain. I'm still going to the park so maybe I'll see you guys there :)

  • Yuki H.

    Hi Ryan. May meet you all at the park. If so, what time?

    July 18, 2014

    • Ryan B.

      We should be arriving from Rush shortly after 9. My plan is to start hiking at 9:15.

      July 18, 2014

  • Angela J.

    ok, I am planning on attending the hike...thank you

    July 17, 2014

  • Angela J.

    there is also a fee to enter the park... is that included in the $4 carpool fee?

    July 17, 2014

    • Ryan B.

      There is no fee to enter and park at the Parade Grounds picnic area, which is where the hike begins and ends.

      July 17, 2014

  • Scott B.

    I would love to go, but I will be doing trail maintenance on the Letchworth trail section just south of the starting point of this hike. Enjoy the views!

    July 16, 2014

  • Vicki

    Hi Ryan, I just wanted to let you know that I plan on meeting you at the park, using your directions sent out earlier.

    July 16, 2014

  • Susan W.

    We are busy with wedding plans for my Marine when she comes home next week. Once things settle down, I look forward to joining in again!

    Hi Ryan,

    Could you please tell me how does the car pool work? Being new in Rochester I don't have a car yet.

    July 13, 2014

    • Ryan B.

      Hi Purba, we meet at the Rush park and ride and there we share rides with whoever is willing to drive people from there to Letchworth. It would be tough to get to Rush without a car, though; if you live in the city, you could ride with me. Just send me a message via Meetup and we'd work it out that way.

      July 14, 2014

    • Nick D.

      Yeah I live at Rowley and Monroe, if anyone needs a ride lemme know. I have a jeep and room for three people in addition to myself

      July 16, 2014

  • Larry O.

    Ryan,
    I've got two conflicts at this time. Not sure how it will all settle out.
    Hope to be there.
    Larry

    July 16, 2014

    • Ryan B.

      Hope you can make it also, Larry. And this seems a good chance to mention that after the hike we can meet at Colby ' s near the Rush park and ride for ice cream.

      July 16, 2014

  • Sophia

    This sounds fun. I usually work in the afternoon. I will be bringing my own car. Can you tell or show us what the route will be and estimated time frame if that's not too much trouble? Thanks!

    July 12, 2014

  • Ryan B.

    Hi everyone -- I'm excited to lead this challenging hike. If you are meeting us at the park and ride at Exit 11 off I-390, please be there a few minutes before 8 so we can figure out rides then. The hike will start at the Parade Grounds picnic area on the east side of the Genesee River: from Nunda, take Route 436 west 4.5 miles to the Parade Grounds entrance (the state park sign will be on the right). Turn right onto the paved road and follow that for about a mile until you reach the picnic/tenting area on the left -- you'll see the cannon. If meeting us there, we'll "circle up" and start hiking at 9:15.

    Please bring hiking boots, sun and/or rain protection, plenty of water, snacks, maybe a lunch (there will be a couple places along the hike to get water and limited food).

    Hi, I'm thinking about going on this hike. Is it possible to explain (other than the distance) why this one is considered strenuous? Thanks

    July 6, 2014

    • Ryan B.

      Hi, besides the distance there are several hills and many stone steps to climb up/down. Also, it may be hot that day.

  • Vijaya

    Hi Ryan, how different is this hike from the hike on the west side of letchworth that we did in may?

    July 5, 2014

    • Ryan B.

      Hi Vijaya, there will be some familiar territory on the west side, but I plan for it to be mostly different. I'm scouting it tomorrow so I'll share more details afterward.

      July 5, 2014

    • Vijaya

      Thanks!

      July 5, 2014

    Out of town again! Have fun!
