Red Creek from Genesee Waterways Center
Red Creek is a lovely spring paddle!!  We'll put our boats in at the
Genesee Water ways Center off Elmwood Ave.  There are docks there but there
is a muddy little put in for those not wishing to use the docks.  We'll
paddle a short distance on the River, turn onto the historic Erie Canal
then turn into Red Creek.  There are many signs of spring on this creek and
it's just a "gem" in the middle of the city.

I will be leading a weekly mid-week paddle this season. It will be either on Wednesday or Thursday, depending on which day has the better weather. Last season we averaged 11-1/2 miles per trip, withabout 5 hours on the water. We paddle at a fairly relaxed pace, but these are "all day trips" so bring a lunch and plenty of water. We could be paddling anywhere on the Mohawk, Hudson, or one of the many streams that are in the region or the southern Adirondacks. I will decide on a location and day the weekend before each trip. I will also attempt to have the destination listed on the Chapter website as soon as possible. Contact me by e-mail for more information and to be put on the Paddler's E-mail list for future trips. As with all Chapter Paddling Trips,you must wear your properly fastened PFD, and bring a whistle and a white light. If I'm not able to lead a particular trip, a qualified substitute leader will be assigned. The paddle will go on.

Fir Mountain is one of the trail-less peaks in the Catskills so it’s for anyone interested in bagging a peak, helping to find the canister or just going for a walk in the woods. The distance is about 7 miles, half of which is off trail, with about 1500 feet of ascent.

At just under 4000 feet, Pico is one of the highest peaks in Vermont.  We will start at Sherbourne Pass on Route 4.  A steady, moderate uphill climb of 2.7 miles will take us to the Pico Camp cabin. We will take a short, steep side trail from there to the summit.  If it isn't too hazy, we will see most of the northern Green Mountain spine. A short stroll along a herd path leads to a separate south facing view of Killington Peak.  Round trip is 6.2 miles with an ascent of 2000 feet.

  Finger Lakes Trail Update

For those of you who are new to the ADK Genessee Valley Chapter, you may not be aware that we help the Finger Lakes Trail Conference maintain approximately 8 miles of trail in the North Hornell area of the southern tier (part of Maps M9 and M10). Chapter members representing all ages and walks of life, made a phenomenal commitment towards thisendeavor during 2019. As the trail steward for this project, I cannot adequately express my thanks for all the support and hard work that was given. And to those of you who recently received FLT maintenance paperwork in the mail, please complete it and return it directly to the FLT this year if you plan on continuing to help for 2020.

Generally, the trail is maintained three times a season, one each, in April, June, and October.  As always, dates are subject to the cooperation of the weather.  This past year, due to a higher than usual rain fall, additional maintenance trips were added including a camping opportunity at Kanakadea County Park at Almond Dam. In total there were four pre-hikes and three formally scheduled maintenance projects (one of which was cancelled due to thunderstorms) and two make-up maintenance trips. Twenty volunteers stepped forward to help this past year.  The FLT Conference is most grateful for our efforts and are happy that the Genesee Valley Chapter is continuing its commitment to help for 2020.

And, 2020, will be just as rewarding andfun! Volunteers are needed for trail walk throughs (to access maintenance needs), followed by work projects that include blazing, litter removal, trenching and brush removal. 

This year there will be two trail closures to our section of trail, due to a bridge and water treatment plant construction project and I have already met our FLT representative and educated about the detour routes for 2020. There will also be two exciting FLT lean-to construction projects this year that youcan help with, along with our three normally scheduled maintenance project days.  You are invited to join in as many projects as you wish.  With the busy demands on life, assisting with just one event is a gift. I would be on top of the mountain if the number of interestedvolunteers increased from 20 to 40, and each was able to help just onetime! GVC members carpool together, share terrific goodies on the trail and demonstrate incredible levels of energy and stamina doing trail maintenance while cracking jokes and sharing tales of hiking!



Please contact me if you are interested in participating this year via email: FLT-steward@adk-gvc.org. I will contact you promptly with necessary paperwork and further details.  And please, keep on checking the ADK/GVC calendar for any changes that may occur.   Currently, maintenance project dates are Saturday, April18th, Saturday, June 6th, and Saturday, October 3rd.  (Yes, I already had to change a date from April 4th to the 18th due an unseen personal conflict).  Pre-hikes are announced closer to the maintenance project dates, usually at the Chapter meetings and from me via email. Most pre-hikes occur during a weekday.  Maintenance projects are cancelled only when the weather conditions endanger the livelihood of workers. 

FLT lean-to construction near our trail assignment is scheduled for May 16th through the 20th and is overseen by the FLT Conference.  Many workers are needed for these special building events.  The more the merrier. The second lean-to project, to be completed near Letchworth State Park, is tentatively scheduled in late June, details following in other newsletters.  Once the logistics and volunteer needs for these projects are determined, I will forward that information to everyonevia email, the ADK/GVC newsletter and ADK/GVC meetings.  And of course, you may contact me directly.



I have already started running lists as to who is available to volunteer for pre-hikes, maintenance dates, and lean-to construction.  It is never too early to let me know what you are interested in and planning to attend!

Thanks, Beth

Starting from Ballston Spa, we will use public transportation to ride to two different hikes (in Woods Hollow Preserve and Saratoga Spa State Park). The hikes will be easy (amounting toabout 5 miles altogether), so no need for a full backpack, but you may want to bring a fanny pack or a water bottle. After hiking, we'll grab a snack or ice cream. Participants will need either aCDTA fare card or cash for 3 bus rides ($1.50 each--so three $1 bills plus coins amounting to $1.50 will cover it), and money to buy a snack afterward (if desired). Meet at 9 a.m., in front of the Coffee Planet Cafe, corner of Route 50 and Malta Avenue in Ballston Spa. There is public parking nearby, as well as street parking.

I’m hoping the timing of this will catch the falls with plenty of water and the mountain laurel in bloom.  What could be better?!  We will drop a car at the Jug End trailhead and proceed to the Race Brook Falls trailhead where we will begin our hike.  We will hike up the Race Brook Falls trail admiring the falls and perhaps cooling in their spray.  Once on the ridge we will turn right onto the Appalachian Trail.  We will summit Mt. Everett and continue down the ridge to Jug End with many view spots along the ridge.  There are a couple of crossings of Race Brook, only one on a bridge.  The section down to Jug End Trailhead is quite steep.  Total distance is roughly 9 miles and 2200’ of elevation gain. If we don’t have enough participants to spot a car we will amendthe hike to begin and end at the Race Brook Falls trailhead.

Be on thewater by 6:00 p.m.   Collar City Ramble participants will have some familiarity with the location and be dazzled by the transformation, if you haven’t launched here recently.  We will be launching below the Federal Dam so we will explore downstream along the waterfront of Troy and among the islands.  If coming across the Green Island Bridge into Troy, turn left at the light on the east end of the bridge onto King St. and follow King St. north 2 blocks to merge with River St., go 8 blocks north on River St. to Ingalls Ave. and turn leftafter Bella Napoli Bakery toward the launch. The put-in is down the ramp, parking at the top.  If coming across the 112th St. Bridge, turn right at the light at the east end of the bridge onto 2nd Ave., continue south down 2nd Ave. (which will turn into River St. at 101st St.) until you reach Ingalls Ave. (before Bella Napoli Bakery), turn right into Ingalls, launch at bottom, park at top.  No need to sign up, just show up. You must wear a securely fastened PFD and have a white light and whistle. See General Paddling info for evening paddling trips. Co-leader: Ellen Luchsinger

NOTE:  If car pooling is still not advised, Iwill not run this outing.
Leaving from the Garden parking lot in Keene Valley, the trail over the The Brothers offers spectacular views along open rock ridges and outcroppings. Let's plan on hiking two of the three Brothers which will be 3.5 miles round-trip with 1600 feet of elevation gain. Do not be misled by the relatively short number of miles. This trail has some rugged sections, but rewards are bountiful.  Since there will be significant exposure, this hike is highly weatherdependent. We need a day with a high temperature not over 75 degrees and clear visibility.  Email contact preferred.

I will be leading a weekly mid-week paddle this season. It will be either on Wednesday or Thursday, depending on which day has the better weather. Last season we averaged 11-1/2 miles per trip, withabout 5 hours on the water. We paddle at a fairly relaxed pace, but these are "all day trips" so bring a lunch and plenty of water. We could be paddling anywhere on the Mohawk, Hudson, or one of the many streams that are in the region or the southern Adirondacks. I will decide on a location and day the weekend before each trip. I will also attempt to have the destination listed on the Chapter website as soon as possible. Contact me by e-mail for more information and to be put on the Paddler's E-mail list for future trips. As with all Chapter Paddling Trips,you must wear your properly fastened PFD, and bring a whistle and a white light. If I'm not able to lead a particular trip, a qualified substitute leader will be assigned. The paddle will go on.

This is a loop startring from Westerlo, with many beautiful views of ridges, valleys, and streams.  On the wayout of Westerlo, we will stop at a cemetery for unknown soldiers from the Revolutionary War.  Mid-way, we will stop at Fox Creek Marketand falls.  On the way back, we pass views of Cole Hill, and anold downhill ski center, and the highest hills of the Helderbergs.  The last leg has wonderful views to the Blackhead Mountains of the northern Catskills.  There are two larger hills—one out of Westerlo and a short but steep one on Joslin Hill Road.  They are both worth the effort, and the stats still only add up to 1400 feet of climbing and 26 miles.  You can pick up a quart of your favorite home-made soup at a small store in Westerlo after ending the ride.  There are several crossings of the Long Path, for those whom may be interested in learning about the trail and it’s access points.

Tuesday, June 23,Virtual Book Club, 7 PM

Something new this time.  Are you looking for people to discuss a good book with?   Lots ofpeople love to read, but it can be hard to find someone to discuss thebook you're reading.  Cora Lee would like to discuss A Sand County Almanac, by Aldo Leopold.  Amazon reports this book was first published in 1949 and praised in The New York Times Book Review as "a trenchant book, full of vigor and bite," A Sand County Almanac combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America's relationship to the land.   Contact Cora Lee at (607) 796-5077 or forestmagicclb@yahoo.com.  This is a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends with common interests.
