    Starting in 2009 Eibert Dykstra led a series of hikes on the Conservation Trail in New York State.

Sections of these hikes will be strenuous.  If you commit to these hikes, pack a lunch, snacks and plenty of water.  Plan on spending a full day away.  We will be carpooling from Fort Erie.  Passport or equivalent is required.
