Thank you Phil and Sandra for leading last weeks hike! A nice hike and some ice-cream.

This week we are going to hike Sweedler’s preserve.  No ice cream just sweat.

This is a moderate to difficult but short hike down a beautiful beautiful gorge with an impressive waterfall and another smaller one with a pool at the bottom.   The hike will be a gradual to steep downhill then a  steep uphill, followed by another stretch along the upper stream…wow that is a confusing description…just don’t worry about it, it’s beautiful.  Just prepare for some uphills.
The hike is shorter, plan on about 1 1/2 hours total.
We’ll meet at 1:00 at parking area on Town line Road, just off of Sand Bank Road.  The best way to go is go up Sand Bank Road just past Buttermilk falls entrance on 13 and veer right onto Town Line Road where there is a “y” intersection.  The parking area is just on the right.
Please RSVP if you are going.
Rob and Bettina

Each week we will be choosing a different location to walk and hike the beautiful trails that are around the greater Ithaca area. So please sign up for email notifications by contacting Rob or at the church in the foyer desk.

This life group is to connect relationally with those in the group, spiritually in God’s creation, and physically to get out and move. What an awesome way to see the great outdoors.  Anyone who knows Ithaca knows it is “Gorgeous.” And hiking group does a great job hiking a variety of trails with different levels of difficulty that make it possible for all different hikers to come and be part of the group. Please sign up in the Church Lobby or contact Rob to be on the mailing list and we will make sure to send you all the information to get you involved!

Hebrews 10:25 says it best: “not giving up meeting together as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another” which is exactly what this group is all about.
