Sat, Aug 19: Mountain Bike to Burntbridge Pond This is a 13.5 mile round trip ride on trails in the Cranberry Lake Wild Forest.  Largely flat. Highlights include a scenic view of Cranberry Lake of Brandy Brook Flow and wetlands along the trail, as well as a lunch stop at Burntbridge Pond.  Moderate. Contact Tom Ortmeyer, 315-244-3707tortmeye@gmail.com.

Sun, Aug 20: Canoe down the Grass River We will rendezvous at the Lampson Falls parking area, then carpool up to the put-in and parking area about 3 miles upstream. It is a nice quiet paddle, very little current, with a stop above the Falls and a chance to stretch our legs before paddling back to the cars. About 5 miles round-trip. Contact Duncan Cutter at 315-328-4675, cut57@twcny.rr.com.

Optional supper at the Stonewater Brew Pub. Contact John Barron, 613-828-2296johnbarron@sympatico.ca or Toni Towle, blackrapids@gmail.com.

Sat, Sep 16: Ancient Pines and Jackrabbit walk We’ll start in the settlement of Gabriels and walk to a grove of majestic old pines, about 1.5 miles RT, partly a bushwhack. Each old tree has dogtags and its history is recorded in a database by devoted volunteers and forestry students. Next, we’ll post a car at the VIC and walk the Jackrabbit Trail from Gabriels to the VIC. Rolling terrain amidst big evergreens, about 2.75 miles one-way. Perhaps in a shoreline lean-to we’ll eat a trail lunch. Level 2. Joint trip for Laurentian and North Woods chapter members only.
