A relatively easy one-mile loop through mixed forest to a stream-crossed vale at the foot of the Palmertown Mountains. Thousands of Spring Beauty flowers pave the forest floor here, along with other lovely spring wildflowers including Canada Violets and Dutchman’s Breeches. Leader: Jackie Donnelly. Directions: From exit 16 of the Northway/I-87, head west on Ballard Rd. to Rt. 9., cross Rt. 9 directly onto Corinth Mountain Rd., and proceed about 3 miles over Mt. McGregor. When you reach the stop sign at Spier Falls Rd., turn right onto Spier Falls Rd. Proceed along Spier Falls Rd. about 3.5 miles, and park at the Sherman Island Boat Launch on the left.
