Whiteface from Lake Placid : : : [ Hike/Snowshoe ]

Leader: Wayne Richter   518-893-7895 wrichter@nycap.rr.com
Colead:Joe Babcock   518-791-9395 jababcock19@gmail.com

- We had so much fun hiking to Whiteface via Lake Placid in August that we decided to do it in winter. This time, though, the plan is to snowshoe or ski across the lake to Whiteface Landing and hike to the summit from there (swimming off the dock is optional; bring an ice auger if you're interested). It's then another 3.5 miles to the summit, so the round trip will be 14 miles. We may be breaking trail. We'll keep February 1 as the "rain" date in case the lake hasn't frozen by early January.

We plan to hike the Blue Trail in Hi Tor south from Shay Road for about 3 miles and back north on the Bristol Hills Trail for a total of about  6.5 miles with about 1500 feet of elevation gain on forest trails but also some DEC gravel/dirt access roads. Due to 2 fairly long uphills, this is rated a Class B hike.  You will feel the uphills.  If it is clear, we should get a nice view of Canandaigua Lake and also views of Conklin's Gully.  Meet at 9:00 a.m. atBushnell's Basin Park and Ride (N43.056997, W077.472153) and leave at 9:15 via car pool. The carpool cost will be $14 per vehicle dividedby the number of occupants. (e.g. 2 cars/7 occupants=$28/7=$4 per person). Bring a lunch for the trail, water and equipment suited for the weather.  I strongly suggest microspikes even if there is no snow in Rochester. We should be back by 4:00. Contact John at jtreighn5@gmail.com for more info.  On the morning of the hike only, you may text or call me at 585 284-0089.
