Where: Click the link below to find out!
Meetup Description: Join us for a Saturday morning hike in Penfield at Ellison Park, leaving from the Penfield Road Trailhead. We'll be hiking the Coyote Den trail and the Overlook trail. The Overlook trail has a beautiful view of the Quarry Pond next to the Park. There can be steep areas along the Overlook trail depending on which direction we hike. If we follow the Coyote to its end and back this hike will end up being approximately 2.5 miles. As the weather is getting colder we will be having Hot Cocoa at the end of the hike, Cap't Morgan just might be joining us too!
Description (from the Town of Penfield):
This trail begins on Penfield Road, just west of Gentle's Farm Market. It follows a wash down hill to Irondequoit Creek near the tennis courts. One branch of the trail, the yellow marked trail, leads up to an overlook of the gravel mining ponds at the east part of Ellison Park. This trail is also known as "Coyote Trail."
