Bear Creek State Forest and FLTC Property and CT leanto

This will be a 4 mile hike out and back on the Finger Lakes Trail in Bear Creek State Forest (near Franklinville, just north of Boyce Hill State Forest). After this hike we can drive over to Canada Hill and hike the 1/2 mile into the leanto on the Conservation Trail (there is a nice view from the field next to leanto), and/or drive over to the FLTC property on Rt 242 and hike the 1.5 mile loop up the hill to the FLTC camp site. The hike in Bear Creek State Forest will start at the western end of Bear Creek State Road (which is off rogers Road, which is off Bakerstand Road.)

All trails, no bushwhacking. Hills to climb and descend but not steep.
