Join David Priester for a 4 mile winter hike. Starting on the Finger Lakes Trail on Michigan Hollow Road near Diane's Crossing we’ll hike the Finger Lakes Trail for nearly two miles through some picturesque woods and steep hillsides to the junction near Curtis road, and then continue on the Abbott Loop to its southern crossing of Michigan Hollow Road  Where we will either have spotted cars or will hike the 1.6 mile road walk back to Diane’s Crossing depending on the groups preference.

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.   The hike leader will post trail conditions prior to the hike date to assist with bringing the needed footwear and traction.

Parts of this hike will qualify for the Hike 50 and Hike 100 Challenge with the North Country Trail Association. Mileage will be calculated at the hike.
