Announcing a new Meetup for The Rochester Hiking Meetup Group!

What: Pittsford Canal Towpath Evening Quickie

When: August 6,[masked]:00 PM

Where:
Schoen Place
S Main St & State St
Pittsford, NY 14534

Kristin and Derek are leading another weeknight quickie!

We'll meet right next to the Naples Creek Store near the canal
in Pittsford's Schoen Place. Schoen Place is just off of N.
Main Street in the village of Pittsford, and there is plenty of
parking behind the buildings there. Our hike will take us
southeast along the Erie Canal Towpath out of Pittsford Village
to just past the Pittsford Great Embankment Park and back.
We'll likely share the path with other walkers, joggers and
cyclists, and we'll enjoy views of manicured yards and wooded
areas. We'll surely see boaters enjoying the canal, and we're a
shoo-in to see ducks and ducklings. The route is nearly
completely level, and the crushed gravel surface will lend
itself to a casual walking experience. This will be a great
hike for anyone wishing to bring children in stollers. The
total distance of this hike will be just over 3.5 miles.
Once we're back to Schoen Place, we can relax outside at Bill
Wahl's Microcreamery and enjoy an ice cream cone there.
