Sun, Oct 21: Red Sandstone Hike Join us for a hike along the Raquette River starting in Hannawa Falls and heading to the Sugar Island loop and back. Moderate pace, varying terrain.

Sat, Oct 27: Outing Leadership Clinic Learn our basic procedures and relive some of our experiences in this introduction to being an ADK outing leader. A couple of hours of indoor briefings in the morning, followed by a half-day model hike at Higley Flow State Park. All members welcome, including experienced chapter leaders who may have their own anecdotes to relate. Model hike is about two miles, in easy to moderate terrain, at a very slow pace because there will be a lot of ongoing commentary.
