The hike on Tues., Oct. 22 will be at Milford State Forest located on Kelly Corners Rd. The hike will be about 3 mi. with some moderate hills. Four-wheelers have damaged some of the trail, so having poles could be helpful. We will start at 10 AM from the barn located 0.1 mi. north of the Burners Rd. - Kelly Corners Rd. intersection. To carpool, meet near the Family Dollar store at the West End Plaza, leaving at 9:30. Directions: From West End - proceed out Rt. 205 toward Mt.Vision, go past the stop light near Laurens about 2 mi. and turn right on Dutch Hill Rd. At the top of the hill turn left at the 4 corners. Also, from Oneonta, you can go out East St. which becomes Kelly Corners Rd. at the Milford town line. Any questions, call Linda Pearce at 607 432-8969
