This is an annual event led by the Genesee Valley Conservancy. The bluebells are in bloom for only a couple weeks each year. They blanket the woods floor. This is a hike that goes through private farmland, through fields and over uneven surfaces. Trails can be muddy. It follows the forest along the Genesee River for a ways. It's 3.5 miles, lasts about 2 hours and is held rain or shine. You must be able to hike the complete round trip.
Directions: It might be best for everyone to meet at my house in Geneseo, and I will drive us to the location. It's well attended and finding each other there might be difficult. I live right in the village of Geneseo and it will only take about 15 minutes to get to the start of hike. I need people to be at my house by 9:15-9:30 AM at the latest. The hike starts promptly and we can't be late. RSVP for address and contact information.
To meet at the hike location: 3432 Nations Rd., Geneseo, NY 14454. Nations Rd. is off Rt. 39 between Geneseo and Avon. Call my cell to find us.
Optional: We can eat our lunch at my house afterward. I do have a nice cat, Leo, who likes people.
Bring: A change of socks, shoes and pants, lunch, water, hat, camera, binoculars, sunscreen.
This free event is open to members and non-members of Women Outdoors. Non-members are invited to join us on two events to see what you think. The third time's a charm - we'll ask you to join Women Outdoors at that point. You can join now by clicking on Join Us.
You can also join our Meetup Group: http://www.meetup.com/Women-Outdoors-Finger-Lakes/ and you'll be able to share in the conversation with other attendees, ask about car-pooling, borrow equipment, etc. RSVP here or on Meetup.
