Description
2020 Winter Pool Sessions at the Duanesburg YMCA

We will once again be having poolsessions at the Duanesburg YMCA.  Weexpect the winter sessions to begin on January 9th and run throughto April 19th. These will be held on Thursday evening, from 7:30pmto 9:30pm, but plan to exit the pool at ~9:15pm to leave time to reset the poollanes and dress in the locker rooms.

Free admission for Capital District YMCAmembers, $15 per person per session for non-members, or you may purchase adiscount four session pass card for $50 ($12.50 per session), which will behonored during the spring 2020 sessions as well. These may be purchased at the DuanesburgYMCA main entrance desk.

Canoes, Kayaksand SUPs All Welcome!

No need to sign up in advance, youmay just show up! You will have access to the locker rooms to change andshower. Please bring a lock for the locker if you intend to leave any valuablesinside during the session and don’t forget a towel!

The Duanesburg YMCA may close earlyduring snow storms, so it is best to call and confirm they are open beforemaking the drive if the weather is questionable. Contact the YMCA at518-895-9500 to check for closings.

Long boats (touring kayaks andcanoes) as well as short boats (whitewater kayaks) and SUPs are welcome. Please make sure your boats are clean to the best of your ability.  We do not want leaves and other debris in thepool! Car self-washfacilities are a good way to clean boats on your car rack before pool sessionsduring cold weather.

Boats enter the pool through thedouble doors onthe right side of the building when facing the front entrance. Stageyour boat outside the doors or bring it in if the door is open, then walkaround the building to the main entrance to check in. There is no facility tostore boats on site and rentals are not available, so you must bring your ownboat or make arrangements to borrow a boat from someone else.

We are there to help! Beginning canoe/kayakand kayak rolling instruction may be arranged. Please contact JohnOzard (ozardjw@netscape.net)or Ralph Pascale (Whitewater@adk-schenectady.org) for more information.

We will hike (Class C) about 6 miles with about 600 feet of elevation gain around the lakes on the east side of DurandEastman Park. We will meet at the beach parking lot on Lake Shore Blvd opposite the entrance of Log Cabin Rd. at 10:15 am, start at 10:30 am and hike until about 1:30 p.m. Bring a lunch, we will be eating on the trail. It can be muddy/icy in places around the lakes, so wear appropriate footwear and clothing to fit the conditions. Dogs are not allowed on this hike. For more information contact John at jtreighn5@gmail.com. On the morning of the hike only, you may text or call 585 284-0089.  It is always agood idea to check the website the morning of the hike.

The Sunday Hikes are offered as a benefit to current and potential new membersof ADK. All our hikes have a steady pace, so are not "nature strolls" but they are also not "endurance tests", although we do at times hike at a brisk pace. You'll always want to bringlunch and plenty to drink. Equally important is the proper footwear, gear and clothing for changing conditions. Sometimes unexpected delays can occur, so if you are pressed for time, this hike may not be a good fit. We're always looking for new places to go and additional leaders. Minors are welcome when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Ifnot, the responsible adult must have the signed release which is available on our website

  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

We will first encounter Race Brook Falls which should be ripe and swollen with rain at this time of the year.  The last half mile to the summit will be along the Appalachian Trail.  We won't see through-hikers at this time of the year; maybe some section hikers but always great views.  This hike will be 6 miles round-trip with 1500 feet of elevation gain.
