Virgil Mountain Hike on the Finger Lakes Trail, dirt roads, and powerlines
Come hike the Virgil Mountain Hike with us on a beautiful summer’s day led by Dick Porterfield! We can adjust the distance based on weather and group consensus but plan on around 6-7.5 miles with an elevation gain of about 800 ft. Bring a lunch/snack —we’ll stop for a picnic along the way. Expect to spend 4ish hours on this hike.
Our hike will begin with a 0.3 mile walk on a nearly flat dirt road to the actual trail head. From there, the next 0.7 miles is a good climb. The first section of the trail is beautiful, the trail itself is well prepared, and the footing is good, but it is an aerobic section. We will regroup at several points and wait for everyone. Once we are past that section, the hike levels out and we will continue on the FLT and some dirt roads and powerlines with some nice views. We may venture out on Greek’s ski trails to enjoy the view.
