September 12: Northville-Placid Trail: Catlin Bay

To celebrate the Centennial of the Northville-Placid Trail, ADKX is collaborating with Naturalist and Adirondack Guide, Ed Kanze, to lead a series of nature walks along the central portions of this historic trail. This walk will bring us a mile and a little more (two miles plus round-trip) through diverse and beautiful woods and past some especially beautiful glacial erratic boulders topped with wild gardens of rock cap ferns and mosses. Our destination is a secluded and quiet bay on Long Lake. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for migrating birds, late summer wildflowers, and more.

Meet at the trailhead at 1:30 pm. 

What to Bring: Proper footwear for a hike like sneakers or boots, appropriate clothing, water and snacks if desired.

Registration required for this hike. Directions and more information will be sent once you register. Click HERE to register
