Easy Walk If You Want to Talk
I joined and old friend and his wife for this loop hike and conversation on Labor Day weekend 2020. This is a mostly easy hike with minimal ups and downs and a lot of walking on 2-track gravel and dirt roads. The small pond and dam are a photogenic spot and we enjoyed an apple break and the view on the rock ledge. A note on the description: at the T-intersection at the end of the Townsend Trail, there is a gate across the road, not mentioned in the notes but a significant landmark.

Beautiful hike but TICKS EVERYWHERE!
This hike started off wonderfully, but unfortunately came to an abrupt end upon entering the Long Meadow Trail area. There were ticks EVERYWHERE and I was actually wearing full tick permethrin gear as well as repellent. They covered me! Luckily I was able to pick them off before they bit, but I did have to remove some clothing on the side of the road. Not the most fun! I'm looking forward to going back in the winter when hopefully there is less of a chance of that.

good hike
<p>Just did a quick hike today. The path was well marked and it seemed to go quicker than the time indicated. Highly recommend if you want a short hike and have the rest of the day to do something.</p>

Mileage of hike
Daniel Chazin
<p>I have reviewed the length of this hike with John Mack, our West Hudson Trails Chair, and he has assured me that the 3.8-mile figure we give as the distance of the hike is accurate. &nbsp;This figure is based on wheel measurements, which are more accurate than GPS measurements.</p>

Enjoyed on 1/26/2014
<p>We hiked this route yesterday with a few inches of snow on the ground. Nice hike! The mileage we got on our GPS was more like 4.8 miles. Our time was pretty consistent with what was reported.</p>
