Highland Forest winter hike
On Saturday, I met up with the Syracuse Area Outdoor Adventure Club (SAOAC) and did a hike of the Main Trail Loop at Highland Forest County Park.
Someone built a snowman, about 20 feet of the trail, a lot of people didn’t notice it was there, even though it was easy to spot through the trees.
One part of the trail winds through a pine forest, I’ve hiked this alone, and this is the part that always seems so quiet and peaceful.
About the halfway point is the first lean-to with a picnic table, a popular spot to stop for lunch.
Eventually, I had to split off and finish at a quicker pace since I needed to go to work, but I did spot a homemade chair along the trail. Only some people are allowed to use it though.
