Mountainview Nature Park hike
Sunday's hike primarily followed the Long Path, starting close to where I had ended the previous week and ending at Rockland Lake. It was more hilly than I anticipated, with 2,600 feet of elevation gain in 15.5 miles.
The hike was pretty, not spectacular; I suspect it will be less interesting once the trees leaf out and views are restricted. One highlight of sorts was Buttermilk Falls (not the more famous one in Ithaca, or the other more famous one at the Delaware Water Gap); it was a small but pleasant fall that fades into insignificance on camera.
I'm not entirely sure I'm ready for the SBM end-to-end next weekend, but ready or not ... here it comes.
