Interloken Trail Hike, Finger Lakes National Forest

Saturday, October 28, 2017  •  9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Club members Marsha Zgola and Lincoln Brown will lead a special hike along the Interloken Trail in Finger Lakes National Forest.

This approximately 12-mile-long hike will feature dense forests, open meadows and rolling farmland and pass by several ponds, campsites and a lean-to. The trail is an official spur of the 800-mile-long Finger Lakes Trail System and also encompasses a short segment of the multi-state North Country National Scenic Trail.

The terrain is easy and will be hiked in a slightly downward direction. Given the time of year and the miles hiked, this outing will not be for the faint-hearted, however.

We will proceed somewhat briskly with few and short breaks. Please dress for the time of year and, if you can, wear some blaze orange as bow-hunters may be about (shotgun season starts Nov. 18). We advise layering of warm but breathable garments and a daypack with raingear. Bring sufficient drinking water and a sandwich or high-energy snacks.

We will leave most cars at the trail's southern end and shuttle together to begin the hike at the north end on Parmenter Road.
