Join David Priester for a 2.6 mile winter hike on the Bob Cameron Loop in the Connecticut Hill Wildlife Management Area. This hike starts and ends where the Finger Lakes Trail crosses behind the radio installation at the top of Connecticut Hill.  The hike leads through diverse forests and across both ends of a much eroded shallow gorge.  There is evidence of logging years ago. 

Bring water and snacks, dress appropriately for the weather, and wear sturdy boots, traction devices and/or snowshoes according to the weather.  Be aware that there is very likely to be more snow and/or ice on this trail than in Ithaca. 

Parts of this hike will qualify for the Hike 100 Challenge with the North Country Trail Association. Mileage will be calculated at the hike.
