    Shane Kenyon reviewed Stid Hill Multiple Use Area Trails

    Interesting and a lot more challenging than I expected. I took the left branch (North) up the hill and went off-trail a bit to check out the large gully. Then followed the blue blazes south along the ridge-line, and again went off-trail into the pines near the southern gully. I picked up the trail that leads down the hill next to the southern gully which was very good but steep. The bottom of the hill was problematic however, because the trail markers are tied to small trees and shrubs and at some point they are just gone due to blow down. I ended up in a ton of brambles and blackberry bushes with no blaze to be seen, so I went back up to the woods and traversed along just above the brambles in the valley till I intersected back onto the first trail leading out of the parking area. Very muddy today due to snow melt, and the soil was super saturated, like wet oatmeal, so that added to the challenge. My dog seemed more tired than when we did Mt Haystack as a day hike (20 miles)!

    One of the best hikes to one of the best mountains in the Daks. Awesome views of the great range, Mount Marcy, Panther Gorge, and the whole High Peaks Wilderness. Seven miles in, you reach a false summit on the Great Range trail (which is higher than the majority of the High Peaks actually) from which you can see Little Haystack and Haystack looming before you. Both are exposed and rocky so great alpine scrambles with superb views for nearly a mile.

    This is a very nice woodland trail system with mix of deciduous and pine which is quite lovely. Although the preserve abuts private property, you really get a wilderness feel here which is rare in the Finger Lakes.

    Most of the trails being easy to moderate, with several small gullies on some of the trails which present some technical challenge but these areas for me are also the most picturesque. There is a nice overlook of Brigg's Gully, a very large gully bordering on a gorge which drains into Honeoye Lake.

    The only moderate to difficult trail is the green trail which dips down into Brigg's Gully. The trail is somewhat steep but has many switchbacks which navigate around, and sometimes through, the numerous smaller gullies. The trail markers are often hard to follow, so if you are breaking trail here in the winter be warned. At the end you are rewarded with a great view from within Brigg's Gully with some interesting boulders and small cascades. The hike back up tends to be slippery and will raise a sweat for all but the most fit. I would definitely recommend hiking poles for the less coordinated.

    Shane Kenyon reviewed Upper Clark Gully (2 falls)

    about 5 years ago

    A short but steep hike with a beautiful gully and great falls. You can scramble down the left side for a view from below and bushwack to the lower falls, to view from the crest of that one. Slippery and steep. Another great ice climbing area for the winter.

    The trail here is not great mostly because it is completely surrounded by private land. However, the gorge is impressive as are the falls. Worth a quick stop off to check out as there are many other great falls in the area to see as well.
