Hike the Finger Lakes Trail in Delaware County this summer! We'll hike 8.1 miles between Route 8, through the Barbour Brook State Forest, to the intersection of Loomis Brook Rd (Route 47) and Finch Hollow Road. This strenuous segment crosses three ridges with steep ascents and descents, with elevations between 1,170 and 1,990 feet, and some of it will be a road walk. Plan to hike at a moderate pace with rest stops along the way and a 30 minute stop for lunch. Wear proper clothing and hiking boots or hiking shoes. Bring your lunch & snacks, at least 2 litres of water, rain gear, and the other basic day hiking essentials. Recommended: hiking poles and extra clothing to change into at the end of the hike since this will be over two hours driving time each way including shuttle time. No dogs please.
Due to the necessity of car shuttles and the driving distance, contact the hike leader at least two days in advance if you hope to meet at a location other than EMS.
