Join Joan Collins for a hike on a lovely trail to Wolf Pond. This new 2.4 mile foot trail leads through mostly boreal habitat with gentle ups and downs. The trail ends at Wolf Pond, which has floating bog mats on its western side and spectacular views of the High Peaks to the north. Common Loon, Black-backed Woodpecker, Gray Jay, Boreal Chickadee, Winter Wren, Swainson’s and Hermit Thrushes, and many warbler species including Ovenbird, Magnolia, Blackburnian, and Black-throated Blue Warblers can be found along the trail and at the pond. At this time of year, we will also observe interesting mushrooms and wildflowers. There is a brand new lean-to located near Wolf Pond where we can take a food break. Plan to hike 4.8 miles round trip. Meet at the Geiger Arena parking area in Long Lake at 6 a.m. for transportation to the Wolf Pond Trailhead on Long Lake’s “Little Bus”! (If you are traveling from the east, the bus can meet you at a more convenient location.) There is an outhouse at the Wolf Pond Trailhead (the parking area is located along the Blueridge Road where it crosses the Boreas River) and a new “open-air” outhouse (no walls!) near Wolf Pond, in addition to a restroom at the Geiger Arena bus meeting location. Register by calling the Long Lake Parks and Recreation Department at 518-624-3077. This field trip is jointly sponsored by Northern New York Audubon and the Long Lake Parks and Recreation Department. There is a maximum of 15 participants.
