UPCOMING HIKES



UPDATE ON UPCOMING BULLTHISTLE HIKE ON LELAND RESERVE
PORTION THIS COMING SUNDAY OCTOBER 20TH CANCELED.

The scheduled hike on the Leland Reserve portion of Southern Madison Heritage lands is CANCELED. Carol Smith of the Bullthistle Hiking Club has informed me that Leland Reserve is currently closed for bow hunting. I looked at the N.Y.S.D.E.C. website and it states bow hunting season is from October 1st to Nov.15th. However the hike will continue on Schapiro Reserve and possibly other
Southern Madison Heritage Trust lands with the exception of Gateway Reserve as there is a recently installed deer stand there.

Hike - Apple-lachin Trail - Sun Afternoon 20 Oct 2019 - Pharsalia WMA
The best array of abandoned apple orchards is along Johnson Street within the Pharsalia Wildlife Management Area. So, on Sunday afternoon 20 October 2019, we will do an orchard crawl to appraise this year's crop. About 3 miles with some noticeable hills. Mostly a dirt-road hike with some voluntary penetrations into orchards.
Meet in Norwich in the lot back of HoJo at 1:00.  We depart promptly at 1:05. To meet elsewhere, or for more info, contact me at 607-336-4628 or windsorda@yahoo.com




As the weather cools and several sections of the FLT
are closed due to the Fall hunting season, it's the ideal 
time to do the road walks and get them out of the way.

I plan to do as many road walks as possible before
winter sets in as I do not care to do these in the stifling
summer heat. My plan is to do road walks any county
on the FLT except Chenango and part of Cortland.

If anyone cares to join me, let me know. My contact info.
