Pat Spicer has arranged for a three-day cross-country skiing trip to the Susquehannock Lodge in Potter County. Skiing is planned for each day in the Denton Hill Area. Room has been reserved at the lodge’s Carriage House for fourteen. The price is $132.94 plus tax for a two-night stay and includes two breakfasts and two suppers.
The group will meet at Howe’s True Value in Warren on Wednesday, January 22 and drive to Denton Hill with a stop in Coudersport for lunch. After skiing at Denton Hill they will continue to Susquehannock Lodge for check-in and supper.
Thursday after breakfast and packing lunches skiers will drive to the top of Denton Hill and ski 6 1/2 miles, all on trails, along the ridge and down to the lodge. Supper that night is at the lodge.
Friday will start similarly to the day before; breakfast at the lodge and ski on the ridge, this time for about three miles. The group will then drive back to Warren, stopping along the way for a late lunch.
In case of no snow there will be hikes instead of skiing.
Contact Pat Spicer for more information and to make a reservation. A deposit of 50% is required. The Lodge will not return it if you cancel but you will be able to use it at another date before fall. You can contact Pat at the AOC Annual Dinner on November 24 or call her after November 22 at 814-757-8331 after 8:00 p.m.

Little Rock City a New Experience For Most at Saturday Hike
October 12 Keith and Cindy Miller lead a hike to Little Rock City located north of Salamanca, NY. The area is part of the McCarty Hill State Forest. Starting at the trail head on Hungry Hollow Road, the group joined the North Country Trail and traveled south to the rocks. There the hikers lingered for about an hour at the rocks to snack and explore. Afterwards they took the trace of an old carrage road that once lead tourist to the rocks. Along the way they found the 1840 stone bridge (See banner photo, above.) that crossed a stream. The hike ended at Route 353 where cars had been pre-positioned.
