#10 Conservation Trail

This is a very pretty trail. It starts near the Administration Building on the Red House side of Allegany State Park just past where the outdoor museum is located. Gretchen managed to get stung by a bee again, and stuck her nose down another hole of bees, but outran them, dragging us along.

I don’t typically hike in summer because of… well, bees for one, and also heat and other bugs. So I had never seen a trillium fruit before. That was a cool find.

The trail is pretty well marked and a portion of it is also part of the Finger Lakes / North Country Trail system, which we plan to hike next week. So… we’ll see that section again.

I often forget to turn my GPS on at the car. It claims we walked 5 miles. Actually, it was a tad bit longer.
