Beautiful hike but TICKS EVERYWHERE!
This hike started off wonderfully, but unfortunately came to an abrupt end upon entering the Long Meadow Trail area. There were ticks EVERYWHERE and I was actually wearing full tick permethrin gear as well as repellent. They covered me! Luckily I was able to pick them off before they bit, but I did have to remove some clothing on the side of the road. Not the most fun! I'm looking forward to going back in the winter when hopefully there is less of a chance of that.

Just did a quick hike today. The path was well marked and it seemed to go quicker than the time indicated. Highly recommend if you want a short hike and have the rest of the day to do something.

Mileage of hike
I have reviewed the length of this hike with John Mack, our West Hudson Trails Chair, and he has assured me that the 3.8-mile figure we give as the distance of the hike is accurate. This figure is based on wheel measurements, which are more accurate than GPS measurements.

We hiked this route yesterday with a few inches of snow on the ground. Nice hike! The mileage we got on our GPS was more like 4.8 miles. Our time was pretty consistent with what was reported.
