Club members Marsha Zgola and Barbara Nussbaum will lead a 10-mile
north-to-south hike  along the Interloken Trail in the Finger Lakes National
Forest. The trek will end at the parking lot off Burnt Hill Road just north
of S. Burnt Hill Pond and will feature dense forests, open meadows and
rolling farmland and pass by several ponds and campsites. The trail is an
official spur of the 800-mile-long Finger Lakes Trail system. The terrain is
easy and will be hiked in a slightly downward direction.

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 cars at the trail's southern end and shuttle together
to begin at the north end on Parmenter Road.

For individuals who would prefer to meet at the trailhead, plan to
arrive at 8:50 a.m. at the end-point off Burnt Hill Road/S. Burnt Hill Pond,
located north of Bennettsburg and about 1.5 miles after the road forks at
Wyckoff Road.
