A-Team hike at Old Gick Farm and Fox Farm ~ Apr 11, 2018

Journal entry by Doin McMahon



For a level walk of 4 to 5 miles and rain forecast shortly after noon, we had a good turnout - 16 including Mark and Joy, Jan and Jim, Peter and Donna, Ray H., Bill S., Joanne A, Jo-Ellen, Licia, Gail, Shelly, Jim R., Bonnie and Don. We started out with mostly sun that turned to mostly light clouds at 11 am and back to obscured sun by the end of the day. And, although there were stretches of snow on the trails, the trails were mostly dry and microspikes were finally not needed. Following perimeter trails clockwise, the Old Gick Farm consists of rolling hillocks of open fields providing pleasant views and quiet woodland trails. We returned to the parking lot before 11 am, had a quick snack, and continued on to hike the Fox Farm, hoping to get it all in before rain. We hiked the red trail to the opposite end of the farm, returned largely by an access road through open fields, and, since the weather was actually improving, we toured the yellow trail and orange loop at the north end of the farm. A great day for an easy walk in somewhat sunny, early spring weather.
