Jun 26, Goodyear Lake - The hike on June 26th will be at Goodyear Lake, led by Linda Pearce. We will hike from our house along the RR tracks and through the wooded area at the south end of the lake to the Colliers Dam, about 3 mi., with some moderate inclines. Another option would be to walk on the lake roads, a shorter and easier walk. Protect yourself from ticks. If you want to bring lunch, we will eat in our backyard when we return. Ice cream and cold beverages will be provided. Carpool from Price Chopper, leaving at 9:40 am, or be at our house at 10:00am.
