Detailed Hike Description

This is a loop hike which starts and ends on Shackham Road in the Town of Fabius. Fellows Hill is part of the Finger Lakes Trail/North Country Trail system. The hike route passes a nice overlook of rural Onondaga County, Spruce Pond and we will ascend Fellows Hill, which features a quiet forest with some older trees. The “up” is steep in parts and can be rigorous. This hike is not for newbies.
