CAMDEN — Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust is holding a fall foliage hike Oct. 14.

Naturalist and outdoorsman Bob McNamara will lead the four-mile hike, which includes moderately difficult terrain. The payoff will be a trek among an old growth forest whose trees have grown uninterrupted for hundreds of years. 

This family friendly hike is free.  

The group will meet at the Osceola Tug Hill Cross Country Ski Center parking area at 10 a.m. The center, 1486 Osceola Road, is located half a mile from the Osceola Hotel.

It is recommended that hikers pack a brown bag lunch and water, and wear comfortable hiking clothes and boots.

The Land Trust will provide snacks and extra water.  

Participants will be able to purchase “Tug Hill: A Four Season Guide to the Natural Side” at a discount. It was illustrated by McNamara. He will sign copies of the book picked up on the day of the hike.

Reservations are requested. To sign up, call Community Programs Manager Lianna Lee,  315-779-2239, or send her an email, tughilloutreach@nnymail.com.
