Guided Map Hike Series Day 1
July 6, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Do you want to feel confident traveling the trails in our beautiful Western New York parks? Looking for fresh air and exercise? Want a challenge? Our Guided Map Hike Series is another way to get out there. Come out to Chestnut Ridge Park any Thursday from July 6 to July 27. Meet us at the Casino by the main parking lot. We start hiking at 6:00 pm, so be prompt.
In order to go on any of these hikes, participants must purchase our 2017 Chestnut Ridge map hike map for $10. It will be available from the hike leader at the beginning of each hike. Anyone who has purchased the map earlier in the season may use the same map. The same map may be used for all of the 2017 guided map hikes, so a single purchase is necessary. This map will also be useful for individuals while hiking on their own in the park.
The guided map hikes will take place on the park trails with a certain amount of off-trail walking to locate some of the 25 map hike controls attached to trees throughout the park.
Tonight’s leaders will be Linc Blaisdell and Jackie Novkov.
