Many of us love to be out in the woods but have trouble making time for long rigorous hikes. A nice evening stroll is called for. From now until Big Game Hunting Season in November, we hike some 30 of the most interesting natural areas in our region.

This week's hike takes us to the middle section of Danby State Forest. This is an "out and back" hike. We will hike from Fisher Settlement Rd. east for about an hour, turn around, and retrace our steps. No car shuttle required for this one and that should allow us to leave the woods before sunset.

Bring sturdy, broken-in hiking boots and water. Dress in layers for the weather. Hikers are invited to stop for ice cream on the way back to Ithaca.
