Sat, Mar 7: Postponed to March 14 Snowshoe Haystack Mountain Don’t confuse this Saranac mountain with the high peak! We will be snowshoeing on this moderate to difficult mountain. At the top we will see a beautiful view for the effort the 3.3 mile hike up offers us. Though there is some flat snowshoeing at first a low elevation gain should be expected with a steep climb to the top. Snowshoes with claws/cramp-ons are required due to how slippery it may be. This mountain will have great views on a clear day. 6.6 miles RT, 1302 feet of ascent. Elevation: 2864’. Level 4, moderate to strenuous. Contact Julia Zakaryan, (646)-894-6970 or zakaryj198@potsdam.edu or Kirk Peter Sweet, (716) 359- 0514 or sweetkp196@potsdam.edu.
