Details

Note: If you put your name on the waiting list then you will get an email inviting you to decide whether or not you are going to join in this hike a few days before the hike. The first 12 people who respond to that email will be listed as participants in the hike. Those who don't respond to the email will remain on the waiting list which will then operate as a normal waiting list.

I go on these hikes whether or not anyone else joins in, but I need to know if others are joining as I will wait at the trailhead for late arriving participants.

This 7 mile hike will use portions of the Finger Lakes Trail (shown in orange on the linked G4Map (http://www.mappingsupport.com/p/gmap4.php?q=http://www.wnytrails.com/McCartyHillRockCity/McCartyHillRockCityplannedtracksSEPARATED.kml&ll=42.229919,-78.723792&t=t1&z=14)), the WNYMBA bike trail (shown in blue on the linked G4Map (http://www.mappingsupport.com/p/gmap4.php?q=http://www.wnytrails.com/McCartyHillRockCity/McCartyHillRockCityplannedtracksSEPARATED.kml&ll=42.229919,-78.723792&t=t1&z=14)) and the DEC Little Rock City trail (shown in yellow on the linked G4Map (http://www.mappingsupport.com/p/gmap4.php?q=http://www.wnytrails.com/McCartyHillRockCity/McCartyHillRockCityplannedtracksSEPARATED.kml&ll=42.229919,-78.723792&t=t1&z=14).) All trails, no bushwhack, except for a possible occasional detour around a blowdown across the trail.

We will start at the CCC Camp on Hungry Hollow Road in the middle of McCarty Hill State Forest. We hike north uphill to the junction with the WNYMBA trail. Then we follow the WNYMBA trail south until it connects with the FLT. We follow the FLT to the DEC Little Rock City trail, then the FLT back to the CCC Camp. We will hike down the 2010 tornado damaged hill side on our way back to the CCC Camp (it is just a barren hill side now as most of the downed trees have been removed.)

A waiver of liability will be required. You can download it, sign it, then scan and return it to me by email, fax, or bring a signed copy with you to the hike. (Send me an email through the meetup system and request either the email address for a scanned copy or the fax number for a fax copy.)
